The forex market is a Monday to Friday, 24 hour market, giving you the ability to open positions and see them through many days (and weekends) if needed. But in order for us to maximize our profits we need volatility. Volatility creates opportunities for us as traders against any given time horizon. And of-course this volatility is created via traders, Banks, financial institutions, during Session times.
These Sessions are the Australian, Asian, London and the US Sessions.
For the GMT+2 time-zone:
- London 10:00 – 18:00
- New York 15:00 – 23:00
- Sydney 24:00 – 08:00
- Tokyo 02:00 – 10:00
The most active trading hours are during the London and US Session overlap.
