Most Active Trading Sessions
The Forex market is open 24 hours a day and it is very important to know the most active trading hours. For example, if we choose a session during which the trading volume is low, such as Eastern Standard Time 5 pm - 7 pm EST, when New York is closed and Tokyo is open, and only Sydney starts trading at this time, the spreads are relatively high compared to London, the US and Tokyo. Fewer trading opportunities means fewer financial opportunities. If you want to trade EUR/USD, GBP/USD or USD/CHF, the best time is between 8:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon, the most active trading hours in Europe and the United States.
Peak Trading Hours
For day traders, the most efficient time to trade is from the beginning of the London market at 08:00 GMT to the end of the US market at 22:00 GMT. The peak time for trading is the overlapping trading hours of the US and London markets, from 1 pm GMT to 4 pm GMT.The major trading markets are London, U.S. and Asian markets.
