Forex Market: 24 Hour
Forex is open 24 hours a day, but that doesn’t mean it’s always active the whole day. You can make money in the forex when the market moves up, and you can make money when the market moves down. However, you will have a very difficult time trying to make money when the market doesn’t move at all.
Described in Eastern Time (EST), the table below shows the cycle of world activity in the money markets. The shaded areas are the busiest timeframe, especially for the Euro.
