When is the market open?

Forex trading begins each day in Sydney and moves around the globe as the business day begins in each financial center, first to Tokyo, then London, and New York.

Unlike any other financial market, investors can respond to currency fluctuations caused by economic, social, and political events at the time they occur — day or night.

Forex market opens on Sunday 5pm EST (10:00pm GMT) and closes on Friday 5pm EST (10:00pm GMT).
