(this slider shows UTC time zone for Market24hClock)

The first and last trading hours of any stock exchange are hours of peak activity on the market. Having analysed charts and data for major currency pairs over a period of 15 years, and compared it with time of key economic data releases we came up with the Market Activity Sectors.

The hours of the Activity Sectors are, however, slightly approximate. It means that the market activity doesn’t necessarily start or end at a given hour sharp, as well as there can’t be equal amounts of market activity daily. It varies depending on current weekday, season, and economic situation. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday are the most active trading days; however, some important and influential economic releases don’t come out on daily basis. That is why traders need a combination of tools to understand market moves. As for seasons (some countries switch to DST for Summer), European and American Markets start working an hour earlier in Summer (April – October), but the Activity Sector for the European session and the Activity Sector for the North American session don’t change throughout seasons because our observations and testing data shows that variuos coinciding factors make the peaks in market activity fit into the highlighted Market Activity hours regardless of the current season.
