Hi i just want to ask what is the different between regular chart and pre market chart turn on ? i need to focus on which chart for trading ? thank you because both on same timeframe but its look different ..
 
@Vinny1993 Good question... For traders who don't do premarket and after hours trading, having the extended hours enabled can skew chart indicators due to the low trade volume during that time... This low volume would have an impact on moving averages, momentum indicators, etc... I keep one chart open with extended hours enabled but have never done any comparison against my standard trade charts that have them disabled... Perhaps you could do a side-by-side comparison and see the differences for yourself using a two chart panel...
