What Are the Differences Between the

Trading hours vary between winter and summer just like they vary between the hours of daylight and the seasons. Of course, to make calculated decisions while trading, you need to stay aware of the differences of the trading sessions according to your region. At UOP we use GMT +3 in the summer sessions and GMT +2 in the winter sessions, so make sure you take that into account!

Trading Hours

With the start of the trading day and in the first few hours of market open, movements tend to be calmer than usual. When the Tokyo and London market sessions start, though, movements tend to become more sizable.

You have complete access to trade forex 24 hours a day, 5 days a week and you can start placing new trades, cancel existing ones or even modify them right after market open. With every new trade you place on UOP, you get one step closer to achieving your trading goals.

You can even be trading with assistance of your UOP account manager who’s here to push your trading limits and assist you into becoming the seasoned trader you want to be.

When one market is opening and another is closing, volatility becomes evident in the markets. So keep an eye out for these trading sessions because that’s when spreads change and prices go up as well as down. Take a look at the chart below to understand when one session starts and another ends.
