Forex market hours. When to trade and when not to
Forex market is open 24 hours a day. It provides a great opportunity for traders to trade at any time of the day or night. However, when it seems to be not so important at the beginning, the right time to trade is one of the most crucial points in becoming a successful Forex trader.
The best time to trade is when the market is the most active and therefore has the biggest volume of trades. Actively traded markets will create a good chance to catch a good trading opportunity and make profits. While calm slow markets would literally waste your time & efforts — turn off your computer and don't even bother!
Forex trading hours, Forex trading time:
Tokyo opens at 7:00 pm to 4:00 am EST (EDT)
Sydney opens at 5:00 pm to 2:00 am EST (EDT)
London opens at 3:00 am to 12:00 noon EST (EDT)
And so, there are hours when two sessions overlap:
New York and London: between 8:00 am — 12:00 noon EST (EDT)
At those overlapping trading hours you'll find the highest volume of trades and therefore more chances to win in the foreign currency exchange market.
