The NZD pairs generally move good. The Euro moves decent after midnight EST.

It's the same currencies that maintain their liquidity whether during the USA hours have the same liquidity during Asian hours. Wait until 2 AM EST for London to enter.

But if the optimal trading time for me during the Asian session is there any currency you'd recommend?

Honestly, I would just stick to those who are most liquid. But, did you consider the Mini Nikkei on Osaka? I know it's not a currency but that is a very liquid contract and it has cheap clearing.

I like the /6J after 4:30pm PST as it often has some swings for a few hours at least on the 5min or 1min chart. /CL sometimes moves after 10pm.

Old thread, I know. But the Aussie Dollar has quickly become one of my fav markets to keep an eye on in the evening, especially if the RBA is speaking. Iíve traded the Yen, Euro, Pound against the dollar and against eachother, yet AUD/USD is where Iíve had the most success in currency futures.
