Is there any research backing the best times to trade,there is free basic stats on the net.Here is what ive found that is of any use,do we want to be active when the large instuitions and banks are setting up their trades for the day,are positions being closed out of during lunch breaks,certain months of the year are better for trading oct,nov,dec,jan,feb,march in a steady market .we can check historical price movements on any product using Excel ,looking at end of month patterns is there any noticeable increase in volume ,of course this is no prediction of what the future is going to do.But we can see if this pattern is playing out on the lead up too.I want to be taking a trade when there is strong support in a certain direction.

Be lucky.

If you concern yourself with what Months are best to trade, then the reality is you won´t get very far in forex. Simply look at what most people say or better yet Do in forex, and it will be clear to see why most of us lose. People trade or take positions based on what they believe the market will do, instead of what it is actually doing. Large institutions don´t set up trades, but what they do is actually make trades which causes the market to shift as we see it day in and day out. Big institutions don´t pick tops or bottoms, nor do they look at higher tf to see where the market is going. We ignore the basic principle of currency trading which is supply and demand which is why we lose more then we win.
  If you want to take a position when their is strong support in a certain direction, then you need to study price action and the different patterns which basically assures you where the next 10 -50 pips will go.

The best time to trade is when you see price reject off high volume nodes. As your friend can tell you the big banks have to get positioned with Billions of dollars. That takes liquidity and volume. I trade based on the reactions of the market off these levels. You can find these trades during almost any regular market session. Of course the two best markets are the EU and USA sessions. I have taken trades all last week during the Aussie and Asian sessions crossover with great success.

My suggestion, stop trying to micro focus and pay attention to what matters......volume and price action.

3 am out 10:am pacific time less consolidation of course opportunity is everywhere consider it conservative, other times opportunistic. Plus keep a journal when are you winning. Also demo should have improved your entry exit and timing keep demo its free.
