Do you trade ES/NQ or ZB/ZN?

  1. For those who have traded both the stock indexes and bonds, I'd like to hear which one you prefer for trading (both day and swing) and why.

    My experience is that I do better when I hold a contract overnight (rather than day trade) for ES/NQ, but what prevents me from increasing size is the chance of a shock event that could mean limit down. I'm a newbie in bonds and don't know if such shock events could affect bonds.

    Even more so.
