Euro Stoxx vs. DAX futures

In reading on this and other forums about what products traders trade, I rarely see the Euro Stoxx 50 (FESX) discussed. However, it seems to trade between 5x and 10x the volume that the DAX trades. From a quick glance at the chart, the eurostoxx seems to resemble a product like the emini s&p, whereas the dax appears to move more like the dow or the russell. This would make sense, given that the liquidity ratio between the ES and YM is roughly equivalent to the liquidity of the FESX vs. DAX.

Does anyone have experience in trading the two, particularly the stoxx?

Many years ago, I traded both. FESX was nice and slow. FDAX had violent moves. This was the way I interpreted them as a rookie futures trader several years ago.

Depending on your schedule and your location in the world, I think both can make good substitutes for US indices.

I do trade Stoxx (FESX). It moves nice and orderly on tick charts. One tick of Stoxx is 10 euro, Dax's is 25... Better for relatively small accounts.

Watch "Where to start as a trader" webinar, part 1:

And read all the common questions and mistakes/pitfalls of new traders:

The short answer to your question is - do not start with futures.

I really enjoy trading the Dax its very technical with lots of obvious chart formations. I tried the FESX but got bored easily, same with the FTSE.

I agree with the trading times and what session is best for your lifestyle , if i lived in the states i would trade the Dow but im in the UK so i trade the Dax.
