Forex trading is conducted around the clock every day except weekends and local holidays. The Forex trading day is divided into three (3) major global sessions with regional spikes in trading activity.
Forex trading starts at the conclusion of each weekend (locally Saturday/Sunday) with the opening of the Asia session (includes Oceania [Wellington-New Zealand]; Sydney,Australia; Tokyo, Japan; Hong Kong; Shanghai, China; Singapore; Moscow, Russia).
Just before the Asian session closes, the European session takes over (London, United Kingdom; Zurich Switzerland; Frankfurt, Germany; Paris, France).
Halfway through the European trading day, the Americas session comes online (New York, United States; Toronto,Canada; Chicago;United States).
These global business handoffs allow the foreign exchange market (FOREX-FX) to remain open 24 hours per weekday. However, trading volumes fluctuate and are not equal across all sessions.
