    Default Best hours to trade?

    What are the best hours to trade for the 4 majors?

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

    Thanks

    -Liz

    if you're trading the euro the best trading times are thru the european sessions and the euro/US session overlap. (2:00 am est - 12:00 pm est)

    The best times are during the European sesson or US session. If you're not familar with the session times, I'd suggest you check out this lesson, http://www.babypips.com/forex-school/market-hours.html.

    Since you live in EST, unless you're one of the lucky ones who don't have a job and can trade at 3am or if you're night owl, the EUR session is usually of the question.

    Hey Pip,

    Still new to this. I usually work til about 6PM EST. I guess that really limits me to trading certain pairs, huh? Or I guess it limits me from trading during the action-packed hours of say the EUR/USD. Hmmmm, off to Tokyo it is...

    As far as the best time to trade, for me it is dependent on if I'm scalping and the currency pair. Generally speaking, I prefer 2 pm Eastern to 6 am Eastern for the European markets.
