Agree, there are 4 sessions in trading. The session is 1. Tokyo Session 2. Sydney Session 3. London Session 4. New York Session. We trade in these 4 sessions. However, the best movement is found in the new work session.

Crossover between London and NY

The Sydney session is not a major market - nor is Frankfurt, BTW - and opens GMT one hour before Tokyo in the summer, and two hours before in the winter. And the heaviest movement is as Craig details, The London / NY crossover.

@DR_Echelon Steve369 has provided you with the information that you were looking for. I hope it helps you.

You might see different answers due to different time zones being displayed
Anyways there is no need to memorize them by heart, simplest thing you can do is just bookmark this link:


Set your desire time zone and session hours will be automatically converted for your ease

That tool is SO USEFUL!
