Different Markets for Day trading

Different market, different trading environments

Each market has different personality, different behavior along with different times of the day when it is most active. If you are finding that the ES ( mini SP) is not giving you enough risk/opportunities then start monitoring a couple of other markets and perhaps explore them in demo / simulated mode.
There are more than a few markets I think are suitable for day-trading. Below you will find some observations, tips along with what is unique about these markets, personality and most active trading hours.

gold futures; The gold market has shot higher this week on safe-haven demand amid a near-crisis in the Trump Administration. The Trump turmoil will likely get worse before it gets better, and that's good news for the gold market bulls
