Depending on where you live in the world, either the markets have already started, have begun to die down, or are in the middle of the most volatile time. How do you know which section you are located in? Simply consult the below table.

When it comes to the Forex and Crypto markets, they are available to open, modify, or close trades 24 hours a day, 5 days a week (7 in the case of Cryptos). Other instruments have an opening and closing time, so you best make sure you know when they open and close, as you’ll only be able to work them during those hours.
