Similarities to Index Futures Trading?

  1. Hey everyone, I've been studying and trading the e-mini index futures for around a year and have gotten comfortable with specific setups and a general strategy. Unfortunately, just as I'm gaining traction, I'm no longer able to trade during the market hours because of a job/internship (I'm still in college). Anyway this has me searching for an instrument thats liquid enough and provides enough movement during the night that I can continue to trade (This is where FX comes in).

    I'm a purely technical trader. I primarily use S/R levels, price action, and volume and secondarily MACD and slow-stoch to make my trades. I was wondering how similar FX trading is to what I've been doing and if any of the skills would be transferable. Basically would I have to relearn everying for these squiggling lines?? hehe
