When is the best time to trade a particular currency pair in the forex markets?

This is a question many new traders ask. And its a good question given that the currency pair available at a given time largely depends on whether a particular markets session is open. For example, the USD/EUR currency pair can only be traded when both the New York and Europa markets are open.

Youll therefore need to know when exactly a particular session is open relative to your time zone. Thats what this guide is about.

IQ Option provides over 80 different currency pairs to trade in. However, for purposes of this guide, Ill focus on 9 different currencies. These correspond to the 6 different market sessions in the world.Take a look at the table below.

When to trade a particular forex pair depends on a number of factors. The first is when the particular currency is available in the markets. The second factor is when the markets overlap each other. Finally, your time zone also comes into consideration.
