That's a complicated relationship, both to some extent even though the futures run as a self contained contract.

Re: FTSE 100 or the DAX for day trading?

There is something about the order flow action in the DAX which I definitely prefer over the FTSE 100 or even the FESX. I have traded the DAX for many years now and like the CL it has very good price/order flow action with many intra-session trends to work.

DAX Price/Order flow action -

Generally DAX isn't worth trading until after the FTSE opens (in terms of point movement). That being said I still prefer trading the DAX. There is a 'follow the leader' issue as the Dow tracks the DAX which tracks the FTSE until the American markets open properly after lunch. Although I don't normally trade the FTSE I can say that if the DAX hits a pivot or Resistance/Support level, it has a reverberation on the movement on the Dow e.g. if DAX hits Resistance level then the Dow will also slow down or reverse trend with it.

Just my 2 pence

Doesn't anyone trade the eurostoxx? Hardly ever hear it mentioned.
