London - New York Overlap

What is the most active hour during the overlap to trade?

Tue, 10/17/2017 - 5:12pm

never really noticed a different in the times.


It can heat up between 5AM EDT and 8AM EDT.

Most active time frame to trade for sure is between 8am (CST) to 11am (CST).
However I typically step aside for 15 minutes at 8:30am (CST) during the
stock market open to avoid volatile swings, as well as the 9am time frame
when you have an influx of economic reports. Sometime best to stay on the sidelines.


I also use the London breakout strategy and wonder when so feel is the best time to enter your trades and do you notice that at 2am est and 3est there is almost always a whipsaw effect which could stop you out of both trades and potentionally leave you without a trade once the breakout occurs
