Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

It doesn't necessarily follow that the best time to trade is when the currency is most active - that's going to depend entirely on whether your strategy is designed to benefit from the increased activity.

The last time I checked (over a year ago) I was surprised to discover that there was as much short term volatility in the Euro around the time of the US open as there was around the London open (although there was more volume transacted around the latter).

This may no longer be the case.

I would advise that you find a way to carry out your own data mining for this kind of research (can be done in excel or most decent charting packages). For instance, I'm just an anonymous bloke on a forum and everything above could be completely made up! It's really important to test things thoroughly for yourself and see what works before you put money on the line. Never trust anything just because you read it in a forum or a book etc. Be skeptical.

Hope that helps.
