  1. Based on your experiences, what are the best times to trade Forex if based in the US (EST to be exact) & why?

    Thanks!
     
  2. thqat will depend on the market you intend to trade. The Europe open is 3 am ET, which is aheacy time for Eur trades. The other markets also have more active times
     
  3. When London and New York overlap. I guess between 8 to 12pm EST. You'll find great volatility and liquidity. Unless you like getting up earlier. Say 1 or 2am EST to trade the european sessions? Opening breakouts from Asian session are a common theme.
     
  4. Thanks guys!!

    I think the best time to trade is first 3 hours after London opening and first 3 hours of NY session.
     
  6. i don't trade the fx futures between 5 and 6 PM Est...The liquidity is not sufficient
