Trading the OPEN without a doubt is where the most money can be made. The volatility is consistently higher than at any other time in the day, excepting Fed announcements.

I’ve utilised in the past OPG strategies, but they are a bit hit and miss, plus you need to exit huge numbers of positions quickly, those who have *Exit-all-positions* functionality, which I would imagine all platforms have, this is not a major problem, unless you wish to exit some, hold some.

As I only trade 1 stock, GS, this strategy becomes undiversified. Diversification of OPG is one of the keys to it’s success. Thus I have written a modified OPEN algorithm for the OPEN which I shall be trialling next week.

Thus there will probably be two components to the preceeding analysis. An OPEN analysis and a first-half direction.
