Do you mean trading after hours 4pm - 8pm, and 8am - 9:30am eastern, being an equity index/ETF?

thanks for the question - yes the after hours action and how in the example shown it will add time/wonder/worry to your trading day -now if we take the 3 day spy you will see alot of the slop has been charted out of the moves and you will also see how you can decide how far out to purchase your options on the average -in the example below - you should always be at least 6 months and you or any one charting will be able to count days or weeks or months of front run to decided where your best time line is for your distance stlye

another balanced day thus far - option traders beware -this pattern could remain till the middle of sept in a 50 point range just killing time -



option traders should chart out all indices to see where the action might be -
30 min -- daily -- 3 day -- 4day -- weekly -- and monthly -
try to overlay your findings of time and direction
