tick and volume on ES vs NQ

Hi, i'm learning price action trading on the ES. On the ES, i use a 2000tick chart or 5500 volume chart.

What levels would you consider to have similar price action on the NQ in tick and volume ?

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

For the NQ, ES and the 6E which I do trade I've found the NQ-ES to be similar in "mannerism" for which I trade a 450 tick for entry and a 900 tick for trend. On occasion I do trade the 6E in the same manner but have times traded the 6E using HeikenAshi candles
