Order Entry Timing

by plpope » Wed Sep 07, 2022 3:28 am

I do my daily analysis of potential trades with UA after the end-of-day prices have been updated. If I identify a spread trade I want to enter (using a stop-limit order) should I enter it during the evening hours or wait until (or just before) the daytime session begins? I'm concerned about how thin the trading can be at night and the possibility of getting a fill when there's not enough volume to support continued upward price movement, but fear missing out on large opening moves when the daytime sessions begin. Any advice?
