Today’s Activity

Futures trading runs 24 hours a day from Sunday night until Friday’s close.  It can be done with a dedicated team of employees working in shifts or with a slew of computers following automated systems.  Either way, running a trading desk, is obviously a full time job.

The charts below show a snap shot of signals over a 24 hour period to provide perspective on trading activity.  Signals are broken down in two charts; first by hour from midnight-to-midnight and second by sector.
