Futures trading hours, liquidity is best in RTH

The best futures trading hours are those when the Exchanges are open and liquidity is at its peak.

Liquidity, the volume of contracts transacted is best in RTH (Regular Trading Hours). In US markets this hours are from 9:30 AM NY time to 4:15 PM New York time for the Stock Indexes Futures such as the emini sp, emini nasdaq, etc.

The Globex Session is defined as the trading period between 4:30 PM New york time and 9:29 AM the next day NY Time.

The futures trading hours you use to trade can really impact the results, fills, etc of your trades. Personally I recommend trading in RTH hours where liquidity is at its peak and all market participants are active.

If you set this time hours in your charts you will clearly see better patterns and more order, which is at the end, what we traders want.


US Interest Rates and Bonds RTH are different they run from 8:30 AM NY time to 3:00 PM NY Time.

forex hours in currencies are also different since we need to merge the US session with the European Session. These two sessions represent the best and most liquids periods of currency trading and forex trading since London is the biggest FX Market in the world.

Normally they run from 3:00 AM NY time to 11:30 AM NY time.

If you are trading European stock indexes such as the cac40 or dax the best trading hours are those where the European Exchanges are open but MOST importantly when Germany begins to trade its cash session or RTH from 3 AM NY time to 11:30 NY time

Eurex is mostly dominated by German products such as the Dax, Bund, etc, it is one of the world's leading derivatives exchanges providing European benchmark derivatives featuring open and low-cost electronic access globally.

Its electronic trading and clearing platform offers a broad range of products, and amongst others operates the most liquid fixed income markets.

    First I must congratulate you on a very successful and useful site. It is practical and really helps to trade with confidence. Excellent work. Trust me when I say this...

    I have gone through thousands of sites before I came across your work and indeed it is commendable. I have one question for you. After drawing support and resistance lines on the 30 and 5 minute chart, do you then focus on a 2 minute chart and take your trades based on candlestick patterns?
