  1. What is the most active time for EUR/USD? For example, SP500 futures are most active from 9:30 am-10:30am and 3:00pm -4:00pm Eastern Time. Also, is there a major pair similar to the SP500 futures in terms of similarity in the most active times? Thanks in advance.

  8. As mentioned earlier - the most active time for EUR/USD is usually the US/European overlap session - but there are often great moves during the London session -

    1. Asian Session (Tokyo) 7PM-4AM EST

    USD/JPY, GBP/CHF and GBP/JPY have large ranges during these hours.

    2. US Session (New York) 8AM-5PM EST

    GBP/USD, USD/CHF, GBP/JPY and GBP/CHF large daily ranges.

    3. European Session (London) 2AM-12PM EST

    GBP/JPY and GBP/CHF offer large daily ranges.

    4. US European Overlap Period 8AM-12PM EST

    This session sees alot of volatility.
