Hi,

I've noticed certain times of day (I'm on UK Time) have higher Forex volatility. I am aware of the market overlaps and this is why. I have the times for Sydney (10pm), Tokyo (midnight), NY (1pm) &, London (8am).

Is there a chart published that has all of them throughout the day?

Many thanks,
Paul

I hadn't even noticed it. No wonder others didn't too. Thank you for pointing it out.

Thanks vontogr. What I'm trying to do is understand why volatility goes up at other times of day. I assumed that its because other countries/markets come online, not just the major ones I mention above.

I could look at the time differences between countries and work out what time 'their 8 am' is compared to UK time, but I was hoping for a more conclusive chart.

Well not exactly. I would say it is driven by Economic news like FOMC announcement.

The volatility will also increase as news passes across the news wires throughout the day, unexpected events, comments that may not be in the schedule

In my experience volatility always increases whenever a trading session opens somewhere. Obviously it doesn't increase as much as it does during high impact events and news, but still, there's definitely a difference.

Being in Aus, we have it pretty rough. The Asian session is often quiet, except around large announcements.
