You might think why we have brought such a topic in forex understanding when we are saying it is open 24 hours. But it is for your own good. Because there is a time you should trade to make money with the market movement, here up, and you shouldn’t trade with the market moving down.
And at times, there will be time, when the market will be frozen in time and will not move. It is just like as if Elsa had used her superpower on Forex market. It might be hard to digest, but it does happen in Forex. That is why it is important for you to know when you should trade to make money.\

The best trading time varies from person to person according to their trading plan. For me I trade mostly in New York session. For my trading I am using FXPM as it provides tight spreads and instant trade execution.

Timing is quite important in this field. It's also important to find a reliable company to trade with and be sure you'll get what you want. I personally prefer working with  platform as they have positive reviews and allows a wide choice of services.
