    Could anyone tell me or direct me to find out what times the overseas sessions are in forex?

    Obviously they won't be in my time zone but I'm looking to find out when the asia market opens/closes/most active, along w/ the european markets etc.

    Thank you

    found this via googol:

    There are actually five over-lapping trading sessions that trade 24 hours a day between Sunday evening and Friday evening.

    The New York exchange trades from 7:30 am to 5 pm EST.

    The Sydney, Auckland and Wellington exchanges trade from 3 pm to 11 pm EST.

    The Tokyo Exchange trades from 6pm to 11 pm, they stop to take a lunch break for an hour, then trade until 4 am EST.

    The Hong Kong and Singapore exchanges trade from 7 pm to 3 am EST.

    The last exchanges to trade are the Munich, Zurich, Paris, Frankfurt, Brussels, Amsterdam, and London exchanges, which trade from 2:30am to 11:30 am EST.

    Let's see:

    800 am EST in NY is:

    midnight in Sydney
    1000 pm in Tokyo
    900 pm in Hong Kong
    300 pm in Frankfurt
    100 pm in London
