Forex Market Hours shows the ‘market hours’ of the major Foreign EXCHANGE markets. The major markets are London, New York, Tokyo and Sydney. There are some benefits in knowing the ‘trading hours’ of ForeX markets:

1. The first hour after a major market opens is considered very important and often indicates how the session might develop.
2. In periods when market ‘trading hours’ overlap, liquidity tends to increase as more traders participate in the FX market.
