  1. I am newbie

    In my experience,SGXNK moves slowly but consistently

    HSI moves dramatically but easy to change the way
  2. HSI has so many whipsaw\ pullback\false break out

    but SGXNK is more clear to read

    I chose to trade HSI because SGXNK had too many days where it had no good moves intraday.

    HSI is diffcult to trade intraday due to the fact that decisions need to be made very quickly within 1-2 seconds. Even DAX, which is one of the fastest index futures, does not not move even close to HSI speed.

    Another HSI con is that it is much thinner then SGXNK.

    It all depends on your goals and trading style.

  4. Another HSI con is that it is much thinner then SGXNK\

    do you mean low trade volume?

    sometimes the spread is large

    Yes to both. One of my rules trading hsi is that if spread is bigger than 3 ticks I skip the trade even if my signal appears.
