There are two ways to look at this question. Firstly, if you ask the prudent experts they would often recommend individuals avoid trading during the first hour and the last hour when the markets are very volatile. Taking positions between noon and 1 pm can increase the possibility of earning profits. But there is no golden rule here that you can follow. While volatility is bad for intraday traders if you are smart enough you can much better entry and exit levels in these periods. You need to focus on identifying your list of stocks and then just focus on the right levels. Use the market volatility just as an additional factor. A good intraday with discipline will make profits irrespective of whether the orders are placed in the morning, afternoon or evening.
