What's the best ranging symbol?

What is the best ranging instrument out there? Just going up and down randomly all day long in a range? And if it's trending, there are no big spikes? I'm looking for something great for a intra-day mean reversion strategy?

ES is fine for this

I would say that SP500 futures would work with a mean reversion strategy, possibly using VWAP, but will have to develop a specific strategy for it.
