There are at least two reasons why you should track the major forex market trading hours:

  • The first hour after a major market opens is considered very important and often indicates how the session might develop.
  • In periods when market 'trading hours' overlap, liquidity tends to increase because more traders are participating in the FX market.
  • The hourly volume graph shows the historical level of trading activity on fxTrade for all pairs.
