What are some things to look out for that indicate a day will have some big moves? I perform way better in fast markets

Generally, I would say that if the VIX chart is next to an important low they are big chances for it to come back and get higher.

Also, after long periods of low volatility, there are the greatest chances for a spike.

Also, if you want more volatility for your trades I strongly advise you to trade 30 minutes after the US open (US open starts at 3:30 PM PARIS TIME). Tuesday to Thursday are mostly the best days for liquidity and volatility.

EUREX markets such as FDXM are amazing for volatility if you like markets that move fast :-)
