Most people trade during London and New York sessions. There are few reasons for that:

  • better volatility
  • market are trending more often
  • we have news and economic data release during a day

Asian sessions and scalping

Of course, it does not mean that you can’t scalp during Asian session. You can, but you should use a trading strategy which works better in conditions like:

  • lower volatility
  • range moves

If there is no important news during Asian session then very often markets can be quiet. There are times that week is packed with news and important changes and you can see nice trends.

Still, Asian sessions are harder to scalp but you still can find good opportunities. Just check Yen, Aussie and Kiwi pairs. There should be more movement on them during Asian sessions.
