Hi,

I am currently trading E-mini NQ and searching for alternative in more suitable timezone because I am from Europe. I am searching for alternative which is tradeable in similar fashion as NQ during roughly 2am EST - 9am EST (which is ~9:00 AM - 15:00 AM in Europe).

By "trading in similar fashion" I mean:

- decent volume for 20 contracts with no major slippage (as NQ)
- big daily tick range (as NQ), I mean something like 120 ticks
- at least similar point value but of course it might be more expensive than NQ (~$50 USD/point is ok)

I tried to check after hours and main hours in ES, 6E, Eurostoxx 50 and they just doesn't meet "daily tick range" criteria... Their moves are just too small for my strategy, I need clear and expressive trend moves which I am experiencing daily on NQ. I tried also DAX which is fine from "daily tick range" criteria but is way too expensive...

Thanks a lot for your comments !

you may try Bund (fgbl) but if you feel comfortable with nq I would adapt to its trading hours
