Thank you in advance

Check what time you work at and base it on that if you can.

It will take time but im sure that you will get there. when I started it took me good few weeks before i wrapped my head around that one.

Thank you so much all :), very useful responses.

Tbh, I am very new to trading, so I didn't follow any specific timetable yet.

I am based in Nigeria and I log into my platform once in a day.

Btw 2pm and 4pm when the American markets are open works well for me.

If you work, then it would have to be different I guess. Maybe have your laptop with you during lunch break.

Im usually trading during the day. I have been gifted enough with a job that allows me to trade at work, which is great. 

Not bragging or anything :D

Hey Emiderey,


Welcome to the Community!

To answer your question, I think that trading hours really depend on your own time availability, But you should certainly keep them the same.


As you can imagine , you will need to trade during market open hours(duh) and this means that if you work 9-5 job, you will not have much opportunity to actually trade (unless you do it at work, which mostly isnt possible)

I recommend picking markets that will suit you best(when you are off).

This might mean trading the US if you are in the UK for example.


I'll try to write a bigger post on this topic , so look for it in the trading tools section

@Emiderey, Im trading in the mornings just before I  leave for work. I try and keep it always the same time and keep a routine and keep it simple.

I focus on the AUS which is perfect for me.

What about you? What markets do you trade ?
