Reply To: Best time to day trade


    I choose to day trade EUR/USD during the London and New York overlap, which is from about 1 o’clock to 5 o’clock (UTC).

    Why? This period is ideal because it coincides with the highest liquidity and volatility in the market. Both the London and New York financial centers are open at the point, resulting in serious trading volumes and more significant price shifts, all ideal for finding day trading opportunities.

    The other benefit is spreads, which are normally tighter during this window.
