No never! It makes no sense to place trades outside of market hours as there is not enough liquidity to truly find the correct price direction. It is basically a giant mosh pit and I don’t want to be involved in this at all.

When a stock gaps down overnight exceeding my stop loss level I exit right at the open the next day. No need to try getting out at a slightly better price. Stock flashed a red flag and I exit to be ready to engage with fresh opportunity elsewhere. In the end a trade is a data point and single trades don’t have a huge impact on performance if you stick to your stops.

I adopted a ZEN like approach over time where I focus all of my attention on mastering the “simple” concepts rather than adding complexity. I don’t do options, futures, out-of-session trading or intraday +200% margin.
