Best Forex Trading Hours
The general rule about the best Forex trading hours is to trade currencies only and only if the market is liquid and efficient. In other words, trade it when more trading activities are taking place (liquid market), and most importantly when the market is not distorted or likely to be manipulated (efficient market).
For me and other FX traders that have lost so much money in the Forex market, we know and understand that the best Forex trading hours are the first two hours when London or New York opens. That is it.
As a Forex day trader, try everything to stick to those FX trading hours. A swing trader will enter a swing trade during the same hours, but will be very careful when entering a swing trade on Mondays. That is a different
topic that I will be discussing later.
In truth, it is not how often one is placing trades all over the place that will make one more efficient in the Forex market, but how agile and attentive one is in regards to the Forex trading hours.
