LoL, I kind of noticed that before about the /NQ. I was actually planning on still keeping up my /ES charts to cross confirm in certain situations. Generally they trade pretty correlated most of the time, but sometimes they REALLY diverge.

Most of the methods I have designed for this market is rather funny, All signals are generated on ES first and if NQ has approx same distance from like a moving average, entries are made. Cause this market is sloppy for me, patterns that would well for me in ES, can't even find half of them in NQ.

Have fun.

Look at my cross comparison of the ES and NQ...

Both the same pattern basically, but the ES is generally cleaner.

I use to use a composite of both the ES, NQ, and TF when trading on time charts to remove market noise. Not exactly possible with vol charts off the bat...

I would have to program a way to integrate each tick each second from each future together to form the composite.

Ill get to it someday probably...

Vs the NQ...

Same exact patterns pretty much. NQ has been a little cleaner on these kind of timeframes recently though it appears.

Not sure who had the balls to buy into close on a Friday, but if you did... Odds are you'll be rewarded.

I like trading the TF myself over ES. Your charts look great and I do use some heiken ashi charts as well. What charting are you using?

Can you show a TF chart with your chart arrangement, that would be great. TIA!

They are no true ashi's. They are my own formula.

Here is the micro-timing TF chart.
