    Hello FXexpert,

    Me personally (as a part time trader) take an advantage on each trading session. Generally, the activity at Forex market is divided into 4 trading sessions: Pacific, Asian, European and American. Each session is active during the working hours of a proper region. As a Forex trader, we can be in any part of the world, but it is essential to know which time zone we are in and how the local time corresponds to the local time of the global financial centers.

    I'm more focus trade in Euro and America zone because most of time the price movement is a bit aggressive.

    As for me personally, I trade the Europe and the America market that fits my timing. My time is GMT+1 and the European and the American market are most times the price movement is very aggressive, the momentum is very high; you can peak pips easily during this trading hours. Some times Asia trading hour do experience aggressive price movement too.

    I have plenty of time to be able to use in my trade, but I am not a scalper or intraday trader. So I only need one or two hours to trade. This made ​​me feel comfortable, and I have had excellent results over the last few months.

    Hi, nice to see you.
    I’m a trader with 6-year forex trading experiences.
    I trade with my own EAs, so I can trade 24h.
    But sometimes I would control by myself. Usually from 10am-10pm

    I will advise you that the time which you spend now will pay you later as you will develop the market depth and the knowledge about the currency pair so that your trading will become successful. Always remember that the hard work done in the Forex stays with you for your life

    I am not a professional trader, just a part time trader. I spend my part time approximately 3 hours a day for trading forex. I think 3 hours a day is sufficient to me to see news and analyze the markets. maybe if I have retired from my work I will spend more time in trade.
