Forex Market hours

Forex Market Hours

  • The forex market is open 24 hours a day, five days a week. The international currency market isn't dominated by a single market exchange but involves a global network of exchanges and brokers around the world.
  • The Forex Market Hours is an embeddable trading clock that adds dynamics to the Forex session schedule by displaying current states and time to the upcoming open or close for the Asian, European, and North American trading sessions.
  • The market hours clock can also act as a time zones converter as it offers trading times in both GMT and local time zones.
  • From New Zealand opening in Asia until the US closes, the market is constant operating from Sunday to Friday evenings measured in GMT.
  • There are 3 main sessions that gather the most of the volume, and those sessions are related to the main local share markets opening and close: London, New York, Tokyo. During certain hours of the day, these sessions overlap: that's when the market is more active, providing better opportunities.
