How would you decide to trade this?

    I day trade either FAS/FAZ or TNA/TZA and trying to determine the best way to pick which pair to use on any given day.

    Before someone says, "why not trade both pair..." I am working towards that but not yet nearly comfortable enough to do.

    Thank you.

    Incredibly shameless bump.

    yes, i agree, incredibly shameful.

    Congratulations. Your first post proves you are off to a tremendous start in becoming one of ET's standout numbnut posters.

    Fair question and apologies for not being more clear.

    I would like to choose the pair (mix and matching would be fine, too) that has the higher probability of being more volatile in that day's session.

    So what I am asking is, are there any truly tell-tale signs that will point in that direction? Is there something about pre-market volume and/or price action which will increase my odds of picking the right pair? There are days when FAS-FAZ move like crazy and other day's when TNA-TZA are considerably more volatile.

    Thanks for asking.

    Thanks, nas. That sounds like something I absolutely have to examine. Much appreciated.
