The FX Market Hours widget shows the opening and closing times of Asian, European and North American trading sessions. Also, the widget provides statistics for each currency pair for the last 24 hours, including trade volume, maximum volatility and average spreads. Data is based on information provided by Swiss FX Marketplace.
Trading during a major session will generally offer tighter spreads, which can be advantageous to a trader looking to reduce their broker costs. Additionally, trading during the major forex market hours will allow traders to potentially capitalize on higher volatility in the markets, as most of the daily volume occurs during these sessions.
