What Are The Forex Trading Hours For Currency Traders?

Perhaps the most popular element of foreign exchange trading is the amount of time the markets are open; this has proved to be quite liberating for traders. Unlike the stock market which has very rigid trading hours, Australian currency traders can trade 24/5 from 7:00am on Monday. The graph below how foreign exchange markets are open 24 hours and the most popular trading times when sessions overlap on global currency markets. It is quite easy to see how markets are interlinked and how forex trading hours are open 24 hours until Friday afternoon within the United States. Below shows the trading hours for Australian traders (AEST) with 10:00 pm to 1:00 am the busiest time.
