I use C-M-p (backward-list) and C-M-n (forward-list).

,----[ C-h f backward-list RET ]
| backward-list is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `emacs-lisp/lisp'.
| It is bound to C-M-p.
| (backward-list &optional ARG)
| Move backward across one balanced group of parentheses.
| With ARG, do it that many times.
| Negative arg -N means move forward across N groups of parentheses.

Also you can look at:

,----[ C-h v blink-matching-paren RET ]
| blink-matching-paren's value is t
| *Non-nil means show matching open-paren when close-paren is inserted.
| You can customize this variable.
| Defined in `simple'.
