One of the advantages of forex trading is the ability to trade 24 hours a day, five days a week. That’s because the markets open on Monday 07:00 Sydney time and close on Friday 17:00 New York time. However, just because trading hours allow you to enter the markets all the time, doesn’t mean you necessarily should! The below graphic shows market opening hours and ‘overlaps’ which present some of the best trading times. This is usually when the highest volume of trades happen creating more liquidity and more opportunities.
