Hi Bugs
Thanks for keeping up the great work
Could you comment on the use of the 6e numbers for use in after hours trading ie from 18:00 New York time until midnight & even into the early part of the next day?
I trade the Asian & early European Time Zones.

Bugs I start trading pretty early in the morning. About what time do you post your numbers if I can ask.
I mostly trade the CL, 6E, DAX sometimes TF.
I am central time.

Thanks
Hector

I have never personally checked after 18:00pm EST. what goes on with the #'s I would have to experiment with it a bit..
but you can post some old #'s on your chart # see if tgts are hit after 18:00... im pretty sure they do get hit.. but just check & make sure you have the current trend inline.. without trend the #'s are useless....
Now I personally dont know if mkts are to go up or down everyday but its always good to have a visual confirmation with an indicator or cofirming with basic visuals....
I believe you are in Australia.. so trading our time is a bit hard for you...I can understand... give me sometime ill play around with some stuff.. I dont wanna give you some #'s that are useless...I will get back to you with some positive news.. just gimme some time..NOw it could be today or a day or two.... the only problem i see it might have some problems for us if the #'s dont incline..so ill check everything out & let you know..


Thanks again

Bugs

well summer is here & kids are off from school.. my kids are late sleepers like me.... & dont like the early rise thing like me too... Im usually awake around 8:30am EST... it takes me a bit to run a few things before i get results & then share them to you guys around 9:00ish am. DAX im not sure about... lets stick with OIL & Currency for now... Ill see if down the road i could handle all the mkts....

Thanks again Hector....Im really happy how you traded today!!! keep up the good work...

Thanks
Bugs

Hector do you trade multiple mkts at the same time or just one at a time.. if you trade multiple mkts at a time then i would recommend you to trade the TF cause Im like 100% right everyday.... Gold behaves well too these days.. but TF is kinda my baby... I know its ups & downs.. if you know what i mean....

(some ppl drop by take the #'s trade them get positive results but dont share their results, Im fine with it but @least drop a line of encouragement, that gets me going...)

Again GoodLuck whatever mkt you trade...

Thanks

Bugs

I know Bugs the CL held pretty close at the 93.35 and sold. Actually I wanted to short it there but not that liquid after hour. I was also thinking about buying some puts at that number but the price wasnt there yet at the close and options don't trade after hours. Oh well lets see what happens in morning.
As far as the multiple markets I used to trade the TF primarily but now I have switched to CL more volatile for me and I can get in quick and get out quick compared to TF. But hey if your ringing the register with TF that's what counts. Real early morning like 3 to 4 am central I like trading the DAX and 6E. DAX is the quickest moves I ever have seen and the per tick is $25. I like it a lot but I am still only trading 1 contract until I can get better accustomed to the speed. Gold really don't trade that instrument, but I will check it out. It all pays the same, good ole U.S dollars.

Thanks Bugs for all you do, share and help.
