Trading The Closing Price. Strategies for trading the closing 30 minutes session. http://www.financial-spread-betting.com/course/technical-analysis.html PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THIS VIDEO SO WE CAN DO MORE! i.e. trading end of day times. This is from an indices perspective. This is for day traders who like to day trading the S&P 500, FTSE 100, DAX 30..etc This is a strategy I use in the right conditions. What am i looking for? Let’s focus on the last 30 minutes of trade. This is important because everyone has the same time stamp ending time for the closing of the exchange. At 4pm UK time the market will close – you can’t trade UK stocks after this bell. This open the close to trading opportunities given the right conditions – either some market participants have to fulfill some orders for the day, or they maybe need to square off or close some trades into the close. One thing we can say is that we have to be careful – don’t assume increased volatility – see if there is any clue first. If we get direction right and we get onto the end of something just hold it until the end. We are looking for volume moving in one direction. What happened to that prior 30 minutes is very important. The likelihood is that we won’t be getting that much flurry. We are not trying to fade out momentum here – we either get onto that momentum or not take the trade at all.
