The best times to trade are when two sessions are operating at the same time. From 3:00-4:00 am EST, both the Asian and the London session are in operation. And, from 8:00 am- 12:00 pm EST, both the London and the New York sessions are in operation. During these times which trading sessions overlap, there is more volume and momentum to fuel the movement of currency pairs. Since there are more participants in the market, it is easier to spot trading opportunities. Furthermore, times when trading sessions overlap also tend to be when economic data is released, and this ignites trends and breakouts in the market.
