Hi I've been trading the US markets intraday for the past 6 months and after much pain, patience, introspection and study, it feel that it's beginning to work for me. Being from the UK, with not much to do before lunchtime in the UK, and being a glutten for punishment, I have recently decided to use the skills and systems learned for the US market to trade UK stocks and indices prior to US market open. Having traded the fast moving US market, the UK market generally seems to move on a snails pace intraday in comparison. Chart patterns appear to take all day to form and the swings are generally pathetic (barring the odd miracle). How have other traders of the US and UK market adapted to this? Do the same "rules" apply but using different timescales or is a completely different strategy required?
