Anyone trading Schatz futures (FGBS) in here?

I'm wondering if someone here trades Schatz (German 2yr bond) fixed income futures? If so, how do you trade it? Which time frame etc?

I'm backtesting this market now (for some subjective reason I like it), but don't know what to make of the price action. For example, yesterdays range was whopping 12 ticks:

Though I like a challenge, I'm somewhat doubtful if such a market is even tradeable. Any input on that?

Thanks in advance

I tried before and it was not easy. That was a couple of years ago and the price action still seems untradable. I think there are more spreaders in that instrument.

Have you tried the Bund ?

Just my $0.02

Thanks TraderWerks for your input. Perhaps a focus on the Bund would indeed be a more fruitful use of my time. Any opinion on a "good" time frame?

No affiliation with this blog, but i think he trades all the German bonds and has posted several videos showing his trading methodology - Day in the Life of a Bond Trader

I traded the first few hours of the day. 15 min for S/R lines but not trading.

Trading was on the DOM so a time frame doesn't really apply.
