MySQL query optimization

I want to add an index to improve performance of this  query.
From your experience, which index do you think I would benefit the most?  MyTable has several million rows.  There are maybe about 100 unique client_code, view, batch_timestamp combinations.

Please include your thoughts.

select   client_code
              , view
              , batch_timestamp
              , sum(if(file_reference = null,  1, 0)) as pending
              , count(*) as total
       from mytable
              batch_timestamp >= '20110310'
             and batch_timestamp < DATE_ADD('20110310', INTERVAL 1 DAY)
       group by client_code, view, batch_timestamp
       order by batch_timestamp ;
