Hello, thank you for asking! 

The forex market is open from 22:00 BST on Sunday until 22:00 BST on Friday. Due to the overlapping time zones, there is always at least one Forex market open, depending on the time zone and the part of the world you live in.

This is done in order to enable traders from all parts of the world to participate in real-time trading, despite their time zone and geographical location.

Usually, markets start opening from Australia through Europe ending with North America. In some specific hours Forex markets in these time zones overlap, and during these periods, traders are most active, due to the high activity of trading in Forex.

When the London and New York time zones overlap in trading, that is when the most trading is done, which amounts in the sum around $6 trillion.
