"Alternate" markets you trade

  1. I'm curious what other contracts Index traders augment their trading with. Sure, the "whatever market is working best for my style of trading" is a very true and valid answer but I'm curious what, specifically, some of your "go to" alternatives are when your market of choice doesn't look like a good market to be in. Are there markets you think tend to have a great negative correlation to the US indicies and you have good success trading? So when the ES or YM or whatnot is flat or just not trading all that well there's a market you switch to that is trading well with good volume, etc...

    For those that trade multiple contracts, how many different markets would you say you trade on a somewhat regular basis?

    I was looking into learning more about GC and that market. Anyone have thoughts on GC or other "alternate" markets you like to jump to every now and then?
