If you put two charts side by side, one with the E-mini SP500 and the other one with the E-micro SP500 there are a few differences between them.
Most notably, the E-micro makes trends much more obvious to the naked eye and generally the price action is less choppy (I'm not talking about a range here). For example, if there is a downward leg the move will be smoother in the E-micro than in the E-mini.
These two things combined make trading the E-micros easier, at least in my experience.

My question is, why does this difference exist between the two?

Here's a few examples, however I could not manage to have the images aligned in the proper order.

For the sake of keeping the post short I made a mistake in describing the issue. The E-micros generate better entries with trend when using my own trading system.
In most cases I have the order already waiting at the trend line and in both of my examples, the trends from the E-micros would have generated a profit while the ones from the E-minis would have generated losses. This is what I meant by saying they are more obvious to the naked eye.

Regarding the second part of my question, after analysing some charts again, I think the choppiness is just a function of the differences between tick charts.

Sorry but can I ask something quick since you made this thread?

Is there any difference in movements between FDAX and FDXM?

Thanks.

I wouldn't know since I don't trade those instruments.

I think it's due to the tick charts indeed. Could also be the channels are not drawn exactly the same. Seems the swing highs are the same. Maybe you can use FlowBots Replikanto to view one contract and trade another.
