Updated: May 11


We use custom sessions to define the time periods in which we trade and run our strategies. In the current portfolios as of May 2022, we use 6 custom sessions.


These include:

Crude Pit Session, 9:00 am - 2:30 pm, Monday - Friday

EMINI Day minus 1, 8:30 am - 3:14 pm, Monday - Friday

EURO, 7:00 am - 2:00 pm, Monday - Friday

GRAINS NEW, 8:30 am - 1:15 pm, Monday - Friday

Mirror, 8:29 am - 3:15 pm, Monday - Friday

US STOCK, 8:30 am - 3:15 pm, Monday - Friday


These times are based on exchange time for the market traded.
