MY EXPERIENCE

When I first decided to trade, I was completely perplexed by terms like market hours, pre-market session, London session, after-hours trading, and so on. Only then did I begin to understand market hours, pre market, post market, and after market hours.

When I first decided to enter the forex market, I was perplexed by the three market sessions and what time it was in my country.

Then I learned about all the market sessions but wasn’t sure what time it was in my country, so I changed a few settings in tradingview and added some indicators.

Now I trade with complete understanding of all trading sessions.

Below are the timings I have learnt so far..
