Which chart is better to day trade e-minis off of: Globex or Open Outcry. I notice that moving averages and indicators give different levels/signals depending on what session time you are charting. Is one better or more accurate than the other?
Thanks

These are questions only you can answer.

I can tell you what works for me. But you are not me. And it is a lot more than a chart. It is an understanding...of self ....people.

Try some different charts and find out.

My charts, my entire approach, helps me .....enables me.... to get in the head of other traders. It is my job to find a sucker to take the other side of my trade...PERIOD.... Good thing there is one born every minute.

Here are two of mine ....ES and CL.

I agree with Blash. These are only things you can answer as they fit into your trading plan.

If I would say anything though I would try test as moving averages and such will obviously be completely different.

Some like me, on trade Globex as I like to see all the action as its tied together. Some only RTH and some maybe switch to RTH once indicators catch up.

Personally I think its a matter of preference. But as always... I could be wrong.

Good trading my friends.
