I've been trading shares on the ASX (several weeks/months holding time) and I'm looking at getting into futures day trading. As I have a lot to learn before I can be consistently profitable I'm not quite ready to leave the day job just yet, which means I'm only available until after 6pm weekdays and all day/night weekends.
Does anyone have suggestions as to an ideal market to begin trading in? I will miss the SPI and HSI sessions so I could potentially hit up the US sessions after midnight (although that would wreck havoc on my full time job, I don't think i'd be able to do it).
I could try and catch SPI night sessions or something similar but I've been recommended to stick to the opening sessions due to better liquidity and price action. That pretty much only leaves Europe I guess? With London opening about 5:30pm I think? (AEST - Melbourne).
I'm not particularly fussed if it's IDX/Bonds/Comms/etc. But just bearing in mind that I'll be new to this so if there's a particular class you think would be best suited for learning I'd appreciate any advice.
Thank you for your time
