My experience with ES is bad regardless of the data series and I've experimented with most of the non-time based bars.

TS Range Bars

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

I've also experimented extensively with various non-time bars for the ES. I keep coming back to a 1275 Tick chart as the most reliable entry chart for my day trading . If you have TradeStation then have a look at Kase Bars they are a new format on TS and similar but IMO better than Range bars. I also like 0.75 Renko bars as an anchor chart but the version on TS is quite crude and so I prefer the Investor/RT version with shadow lines.
