The 6J trades nice for a scalper. I do not know your timeframe, but in the Asian session, the equity indexes influence the 6J ( or maybe the other way around ) for shorter temr traders.

Good luck

That's good to hear.
I've done a fair bit of thinking and comparing and I think I'll go down the 6J route rather than Nikkei. 6j is liquid enough for me and it's got no gaps at all, yet is volatile enough in Asia to offer opportunities. At the same time, I do not need to go down the spot currency route which I think has all sorts of issues.

It's also hassle free for me as I can use my favorite platform to chart it (TOS) and I inherently understand how it moves.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.
