Still learning this system, so bound to make some mistales along the way.

Entry is the difficult bit (ie: deciding when the ftse/dow difference has reached an extreme) which is why I try to look for a directional opportunity initially if it is feasible.

There are one or two "timing" tricks you can play with SB pricing to help. For example, let's say that you're looking for a short ftse/long dow and that the dow has rocketed up by 100 after ftse close dragging SB ftse up 50 along with it by dow close. Assuming all quiet on the Asian front overnight, there's a good chance that "real" ftse won't open 50 up and that SB ftse will drop to reflect "real" ftse open giving you an early boost if you'd opened your pair at (or just before) dow close.

I have hourly - manually - gets a bit too jumpy below 10 minutes. Ideally I'd like a real time chart of the "difference" but that beyond my programming skills.
