How to use our Binomo Derivatives market hours overlaps trading tool

We have to admit that learning when to trade currency pairs is usually easier said than done, especially if you’re just a beginner. Again, there are different factors that you have to take into consideration before trading.

Here are three things you need to remember when trading currency pairs:

  1. You should know when the different markets are open in relation to your specific currency pair.
  2. You should know when those derivatives markets overlap.
  3. You should know when the overlap happens based on your timezone.

Real-world example: if you want to trade EUR/USD and you’re from Singapore, then you should know first that the EUR/USD currency pair is only tradable both the New York and European markets are open. Second, you should know that when the markets are open in that part of the world, it’s evening in Singapore, which means you need to plan ahead of time.

When is the best time to trade?

The answer to this question depends on what your preferred currency pairs are. Once you’ve determined what exactly it is that you want to trade, then your next step would be to see when their market hours overlap. Lastly, you should check out what the corresponding time is in relation to your timezone.

For instance, let’s say that you’re interested in trading the GBP/USD currency pair. The next step would be to determine when the London and the New York sessions would overlap. Knowing when the market hours are open would give you the best opportunities for trading since it’s also when the highest volume of trades happen.
