Hello, I think the best thing you can do is to not limit yourself to one market. When I trade, I keep up a 5 minute chart of all 4 markets, the emini S&P, emini Nasdaq, mini Dow an Emini Russell. I use the same time frame for each chart and the exact same chart setup. I use simple candlestick charting and only use a volume indicator. Since these markets generally move in the same direction, I look for one market to be the leader and watch to see which ones follow. I do this to help determine trend reversals and can generally find two or three of these trades per day.
