High Volume

Ed Ponssi from Online Trading Academy had the following to say:

7 a.m. GMT to 4 p.m. GMT (Greenwich Mean Time, which is the standard measurement of time in the Forex market) is an excellent time for high volume trading, because these are the hours during which traders from London and Europe are most active. Make no mistake about it, London is the world's capital of Forex trading, and is responsible for about 30% of all Forex volume. To be even more specific, the open of the U.K. session (between 3-5 GMT a.m.) and the beginning of the US session (11-13 GMT) have really high volume, as these are the most liquid times of the Forex trading day. I would give respect to breakouts that occur between 7 a.m. GMT to 4 p.m. GMT, and also (to a lesser extent) to breakouts that occur in the early part of the Asian session, around midnight GMT. On the other hand, breakouts that occur during a time of day that is notorious for low volume (late in the U.S. session or late in the Asian session, for example) can be ignored or even faded, because these breakouts tend to occur on relatively light volume.

How about Fibonacci on Forex?

Fibonacci works in Forex trading because it is a part of the Forex trading culture. [Only fib lines no other esoteric fib stuff.]

Basically, I want to use what the institutions use and see what they see, and I want to avoid analyzing anything that institutions do not use. Since institutional traders are the ones that move the market, we want to align our analysis with theirs.

For me, the bare minimum time frame for a Fibonacci retracement would be one day, but when I draw a retracement usually I am covering a period of weeks or months. Again, try to pick the one that seems most obvious...which one really sticks out? That's the one that most people will use, including the institutions and hedge funds, and therefore it is the one that is most likely to work.
