European - Asian Trading Sessions Overlapping Hours

European Session and Asian Session Overlap with two major Middle Eastern Stock Markets in Riyadh and Dubai.

Green area is the Market Activity Sector for peak activity on European and Asian markets.

European - Asian Overlap

Time zone

08:00 am - 09:00 am

The European - Asian Overlap starts with the opening of the London Stock Exchange, Zurich and Frankfurt at 08:00 am. Main trading in Tokyo ends at 06:00 am (you can see it on the Market 24h Clock).

The Night Session however, for Index Futures, Index Options and other Derivatives, starts at 06:30 am and continues till 05:55 pm. And this is where Tokyo and the European Trading Session overlaps, and the most liquidity is offered for the Japanese Yen and the European Yen crosses, EUR/JPY, GBP/JPY and CHF/JPY, as well as USD/JPY.

The intersection of the European and Hong Kong markets occurs only in Summer and lasts for an hour; Singapore has 2 hours for Summer and 1 hour of overlap for Winter: from 08:00 am to 09:00 am. Obviously, this will be time of high liquidity for European HKD and SGD crosses.

The least volatile of the three overlaps because of the short-term intersection and absence of the majority of U.S. traders (it is night in the U.S.).
