    The most important question is not what time, but at what levels to buy and sell.

    That is the most important question.

    Trading by time means you are going to be chasing the market and you are going to end up throwing your hands in the air by sheer frustration. What had looked like a buy a moment ago will become a sell and what was like a sell is now shooting north non stop.

    The most important part is buy low sell high. Now the question that has to be asked is how do we know which is the low and which is the high?

    completely agree.

    If you mean best time as in when the market is most active, then the market appears most active during london trading. However, regardless of when you trade, how you trade is more important. If your entry and exit are right, then it doesn't really matter what time of day it is. The outcome matters.

    Like anything else, volatility has its advantages as does less volatile periods.

    Matching desired volatility to the right trading plan, priceless. (sorry, got carried away)

    Good Trading

    Hi LizTrader,

    If you trade of the daily charts, you can take your time analyzing any potential trade setups in the evening after you're done with your day job. Once in a trade, you really only need to check in on it once per day as well. Check out this thread about using price action to make trades based on the daily charts: Forex Price Action

    If you want to trade shorter time frames, then it's either trading during Asian session or changing your sleep schedule.

    I live in EST by the way so if any other EST traders can help I'd really appreciate it.

    Thanks
