Depending upon which contract you are trading, you’ll need to be a bit cautious because you’ll be trading against professional traders, who may trade with large numbers of contracts. They may have more access to information than you. This is especially true for news trades that occur regularly outside normal trading hours. Once you are familiar with trading off hours, you will see yourself getting up in the middle of the night to put on a trade. For those who are insomniacs or have cats that need to be let out in the middle of the night, this is an especially good time to trade. Contact Shadowtraders to get a feel for nite trading because they specialize in off hours trading.
