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.

Interest rates, mostly the 10 year and 30 year.

In most platforms, the symbols are ZB for 30 year bonds and ZN for 10 year notes.

dollar index Futures

The U.S. dollar index is a basket of six major world currencies weighted against the greenback. This week's downside price action in the dollar index has given the bears some fresh technical momentum. However, prices remain trapped in a sideways trading range, defined by the support and resistance levels seen on the chart. The direction in which prices "break out" of the aforementioned trading range will likely be the direction of the next significant price trend in the U.S. dollar index.
