I'll add I'm also trading US2/US30/bobl which are all correlated around 0.45.
All the correlations are below 0.4; so if you can then you should trade them all.

Brief update on performance:
P&L to date: 105.6%
P&L since last report: +9.8%
Drawdown (HWM set in August): 2.1%
Big profits in KOSPI, LIVECOW, NASDAQ, OAT (Merci Macron), SMI. Interestingly I haven't benefited that much from the well publicised crush in vol - the +2 futures I trade haven't moved as much as spot.
Position is dead easy to interpret: I'm long equities and OAT, and short vol. So risk on, big time.
Similar position here, although I'm up 25% in a month thanks to less diversification + more luck (NQ, LE, CAC40). To be honest, I'm slightly terrified; I'm not used to making so much money so quickly, although I expect it will settle down now.
