About Forex Trading

The foreign exchange market is also known as the FX, Forex, or Currency market. It is a global over-the-counter market for trading currencies. This is where currencies are bought and sold deriving the exchange rates for currency pairs. The Forex market is the largest and most liquid market in terms of trading volume and the value traded is 6.6 trillion dollars per day.

Trading the global online foreign exchange markets in South Africa is rewarding and accessible Monday to Friday 24 hours per day, 5 days a week. The global Forex markets close at 23:00 on a Friday night and reopen to be traded at 23:00 in South Africa on a Sunday evening.

Forex Trading Hours for South African traders

Professional traders say the best time to trade from South Africa is when major market sessions overlap. This is generally between 10:00 and 16:00. During these hours South Africans can catch the last two trading hours of the Tokyo session, which overlaps with the opening of the London session and a few hours later this session overlaps with the opening of the U.S markets.

The London and the U.S sessions are generally the most active trading hours, as all market participants affect the currency market in some way. These sessions are prone to important economic news and data being released that potentially have a great impact on exchange rates. The London session runs from 10:00 – 19:00 and the US stock market is open from 15:30-22:00, South African time (daylight saving applies). Towards the end of the London session, unless an economic event takes place, market participation largely drops off.

Although this section is focused on forex, commodity and indices CFD trading follows the same active trading patterns. It is said, the best time to trade gold CFDs for South Africans is when the European and US markets overlap, between 15:00 – 19:00.

One way to reduce the risk of losing your money is to use a stop loss order. A stop loss order is an order that you can place with your broker to sell a security if it falls below a certain price. This can help to protect your losses if the market moves against you.

Another way to reduce the risk of losing your money is to trade with a reputable Over-the-Counter Derivatives Provider (ODP) like Khwezi. A demo account is a great way to practice and back-test your trading strategy before risking your own money.
