My last topic has had great responses so I thought I would try again. Like I said before I have mostly traded Nasdaq stocks in the past and have recently switched to trading NYSE stocks. Someone else mentioned in another thread (which I also find true) that in a lot of cases NYSE stocks do not follow the S&P 500 futures that well. Even the bigcaps, top volume NYSE stocks will move complete opposite the index for extended periods of time. Most large cap, big volume nasdaq stocks follow the nasdaq 100 futures really well. So in some ways you are trading the stock and in other ways you are trading the futures too because they map each other so well. So my question is what is the best leading indicator to trade NYSE stocks off of? Do sector indexes work better than the S&P 500? For the purpose of this discussion I am talking about liquid NYSE stocks. Low volume stocks on both Nas and NYSE do their own things a lot of the time. I would like to get input from those that scalp NYSE stocks and those that do more intraday position trading. Some of my biggest winners in my NYSE stocks have been just trading off the intraday stock chart of large cap stocks. However it always feels weird since I got so used to trading with the futures index direction on Nasdaq.
