    Anybody remember the thread on equivalent position sizes for these 3 ?

    I realize it depends on their average volatility respectfully.

    Does anyone trade all 3 and decide at each trade which has the best chances of running the most?

    Yes, I do. If you watch all three, relatively speaking one will lead or lag. Compare them on a relative strength basis. I've got all four markets (your three plus ER2) all overlayed in the same graph.

    I can't really say if it's "this" then do "that." This is really an exercise in market and tape reading. You'll see how they act. One or another may seem to always want to start running up before the end of a selloff. You can trade the strength (or weakness, if vice versa) or you can wait and trade one that lags. That can give you the bigger move, but it's less predictable.
