    Question for people who trade e mini and use tradestation.Wich of those S&P index you guys watching.What is the Tradestation's right symbol for S&P Index.There is all bunch of it.
    Thanks in advance.

    P.S. By the way what else are you watching(besides e mini itself of course :) ) during intraday session.

    ESM03.D = Front month (June/03) day session E-Mini S&P
    ESM03.E = Front month (June/03) electronic session E-Mini S&P (all hours)
    @ES.E = Continuous E-Mini S&P (all hours)
    @ES.D = Continuous E-Mini S&P day session

    Similarly for E-mini Nasdaq-100 (NQ)

    I keep an eye on both ESM03.E and NQM03.E during the day.

  3. kermit is right. if you're starting to use TSEL for intra-day trading, make sure to use @ES.D since you dont have quite the volume to trade strategies after normal hours. this will restrict the "viewing" hours to the 9:30 - 4:15 day.
