Trading Hours

One of the unique characteristics of the foreign exchange market is that it is open 24 hours a day. This gives the opportunity to the investors around the globe to trade during normal business hours, after work, and even throughout the night. However, not all times are absolutely equal. There are Forex trading hours around the world when price action is continuously volatile & on the other hand, there are also timelines when it is completely muted.

Trading Hours

Even though a 24-hour market provides a substantial advantage for many individual and institutional traders but it is not deprived of certain pitfalls. Although different currencies can be traded anytime you wish, a trader cannot monitor a position for such long periods of time.

This implies that there will be Forex trading times when opportunities are missed, or even worse, when a jump in market volatility leads the spot to move against a set position when the trader is not nearby. In order to reduce such a risk, a trader has to be aware of when the market is most commonly volatile, and therefore decide what times are best for their individual trading strategy and trading style.
