I look at the NQ when trading the NQ. I do homework each night and determine horizontal levels of interest using volume profiles. I use auction market theory on larger time frames to determine diagonal levels of interest (basically channels). Once my levels are in I have a 1000 tick chart for tracking the balance between supply and demand and a 200 tick chart for refining entries.

IMHO most people are looking at way too much to be successful.

This market loves to trend. How does it trade for you guys that are on it daily? E.g., How do you feel its personality differs from ES.

NQ moves more like CL , in that it has can have massive pulses . But, it's a trade off. The levels will smear a bit
requiring a bit larger stop levels.

The massive liquidity of ES keeps these pulses muted . The two were quite correlated during the full on
QE , but now that tapering is in effect they are moving a bit differently
