Trading Hours – When Is The Forex Market Open?

March 7, 2013 0 Comments

The Forex market is open 24 hours a day except for weekend and bank holidays. Main trading centers are to be found in New York, London, Tokyo, Singapore, and Sydney.

Below are Market Hours in Eastern Standard Time (EST)

• Tokyo Market Hours: 7:00 pm to 4:00 am EST
• New York Market Hours: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm EST
• London Market Hours: 3:00 am to 12:00 noon EST
• Sydney Market Hours: 5:00 pm to 2:00 am EST

timesTrading is continuous and hardly ever stops because of the trading centers that are spread on the globe and function in different time zones. As trading in Asia ends, the trading day in Europe begins. As trading in Europe nears an end, the trading day in North America begins, and as North America’s trading day is about to end, trading in Asia is about to begin.

Even though the marker is open almost non-stop, it is recommended that you trade when the market is most active, which is typically between 8:00 am and 4:00 pm (local time zone of each financial center).
