    Thanks... I was just looking at the DAX FDAX correct? It did not look like it had alot of movement at least right now but maybe thats just me. Does it have good volatility at times? Thanks..

    Typically movement in the DAX starts to pick up after 3am NY you'll notice if you look at the volume data.

    For example: look at a 2 or 5 min chart of the DAX between 1am and 3am.

    before 3am(NY time) volume is pretty low, but once 3am comes around, it picks up.
  5. Also look at:

    Afternoon to early morning:

    STW (taiwan)
    SPI (aus)

    Early morning:

    “Streaming market data will finally allow traders to see the true volatility and opportunities in the Eurex markets.

    Enhanced Broadcast Solution (EBS)
    The new data feed EBS offers an innovative high-performance market data broadcast solution for un-netted public market data. The socket-based distribution mechanism features among others an order book depth of 10 for options (previously only inside market data was provided), an enhancement of order Book depth to 20 for benchmark futures (previously 10) and a new subscription model, allowing members to select individual market data of all product groups relevant for their business. Along with the launch of EBS, the new data feed CEF ultra+ of Deutsche Börse Market Data & Analytics was started. CEF ultra+ contains the same market depth as EBS but distributes Eurex trading data to non-Eurex members like data vendors also with lowest latency. It is enriched by a trade recovery functionality which is necessary for data vendors.

  8. The SPI is a good one (Aussie exchange) opens at 8pm ET. It moves quite smoothly and is influenced a lot by what the US index futures are doing.

    It also has a tendency to open at extreme levels where a babboon could make money fading.
