    What are the key times of day for the instruments you trade?

    About 90% of my trades are between 3:00am to 5:00am EST
    and 10:00am to Noon EST (Best times 10:00am to 10:30am)
    Also focused right after a major economic report.

    next 2 hours after Taiwan (China, Hong Kong ) market opens

    next 0.5 hr after the Indian market opens

    next 2 hours after the UK market (occasionally after the German market) opens

    1.5 hours before the US market opens to 0.5 hr after the US market opens

    If the market has been rather dead, I'd reduce the trading hour.
    Occasionally the market is very hot. Then trading hours will be increased.
