Forex Market Hours

Forex market hours are dictated by the individual forex market centres. The opening and closing time Of the most important centres overlap thus the trader has the ability to trade the market at anytime from the weekly open in New Zealand to the close on Friday in New York. This effectively means that the market is open 24HRs a day. Despite this each individual market centres open and close at specific times and this can effect the rhythm of trading and price action as overlapping markets centres open and close. In addition, from an accounting perspective each trading day has an official close. For almost all brokers this tends to be the close of New York trading at 5.00pm EST or 10.00pm GMT.
