Trading the London Open

    I've been a long time dabbler in FX and am wanting to start taking it a bit more serious.

    I've tried several different trading styles over the years (scalping, day trading, and swing trading) indicators and no indicators and only made money with day trading with just watching price action. However that is not real conducive to working a full time job as an employee which I must at this point in my life.

    Day trading seems to be what fits my personality the best and is something that I can better relate to. My only real option I see is to trade non US hours unless I want to swing trade or trade longer time frames which has been challenging at best for me. Trading from work is not an option.

    To my question; I am thinking about just trading the London open for the couple of hours that Tokyo overlaps with London. Anyone else trade this period and what are ya'lls experiences, advice, and thoughts on this?

    Thanks ahead of time.
