Why would you want to trade futures in the afternoon when the morning is said to have the best opportunities? Because still more opportunities exist in the afternoon. Perhaps you were busy in the morning or sought to recover from a couple of trades that didn’t go so well. Revenge trading or any type of emotionally driven trading is discouraged. Rather, sticking to objective rules ensures that one can more easily measure the success of an approach over a given period.
The ABC Method was designed for afternoon trading. Multiple entry opportunities can be found in the afternoon before market close. However, some days there are simply no signals. Trending days tend to trigger ABC entry opportunities. That’s because the ABC is a breakout method. If price exceeds the prior period’s high and low via two closing candles, then expect a signal in the new period. That means only periods B and C yield entry opportunities. period A merely establishes the high and low for a possible entry in period B.
It’s important to remember the first two periods are 2.5 hours in duration. The A period begins at market open, 9:30 a.m. If this sounds like too much work, you may consider the ATO 2 method which includes the ABC Indicator. Another option is the 8-Week Mentorship Program. With the latter, all courses and software are included with Lifetime licenses.
