Traders Union

A recent report from Traders Union (TU) suggests that Nigerian Forex traders have a golden opportunity during the London Forex Session, highlighting the importance of time synchronization and strategic trading hours to optimize effectiveness in the rapidly growing Nigerian Forex market.

Nigerian Forex traders have a golden window in the London Forex Session, suggests a report from TU (Traders Union) experts released earlier this week. The study on Forex trading sessions and how they matter to Nigeria points out the overlap with the London market time. This could change how people trade.

The global Forex market, which recently witnessed a surge in the US with a daily volume of $966.7 billion in Q1 2023, operates 24 hours, segmented into key regional sessions. The TU report zeroes in on the European or London session’s significance for Nigerian traders, given the country’s growing dominance in the African Forex landscape.

“If you are a Forex trader with interests in the Nigerian FX market, understanding the Forex trading sessions in the country is imperative,” the report elucidates, placing a clear emphasis on the power of informed trading.

TU’s findings reveal:

  • Prime Trading Hours: For those in Nigeria aiming to capitalize on the European market, 09:00 am to 06:00 pm Nigerian time aligns with the bustling hours of London’s trading window.
  • Top Currency Trades: The London session, according to TU experts, is particularly potent for pairs like EUR/USD, GBP/USD, and EUR/GBP. This affinity is attributed to market dynamics and the deep-rooted historical connections between Nigeria and the UK.
  • Strategic Time Zone Play: Nigeria operates on the West Africa Standard Time (GMT+1), granting traders a time advantage. Nigerian traders can access the European market during their regular work hours, making the most of the London session.
  • Intraday Insights: One of the highlights of the report is the specific recommendation for intraday traders. TU experts pinpoint 10:15 am to 2:30 pm Nigerian time as the prime window, corresponding with a dip in morning volatility in Europe.

According to TU expert opinion, which emphasizes the power of time synchronization, “Leveraging Forex Trading Sessions in Nigeria Time can optimize trading effectiveness. These sessions coincide with local hours, allowing Nigerian traders to actively engage in the Forex market. Yet, traders must be cautious of session overlaps, as increased volatility can lead to unexpected price movements. Diligent research and a disciplined approach are vital to selecting sessions that align with your risk appetite and trading strategy.”

The study also peeked into what Nigerian traders are up to nowadays, diving into the exact tactics they’re into. It went deeper into the specific strategies they’re leaning on. Interestingly, while 52% of those surveyed were inclined towards intraday strategies, 48% leaned towards long-term trading. This suggests that a blended approach might serve traders best, especially when targeting the London session Forex time in Nigeria.

TU’s report comes just when Nigeria is flaunting strong GDP numbers and an active Forex market. Nigeria seems ready to make bigger moves in global trading. This research might be the edge traders are looking for, leading them to fresh chances to earn more and grow..

With the current trajectory and armed with these findings, Nigerian traders now stand at the brink of possibly reshaping their strategies, optimizing them for the bustling hours of the London Forex market. Only time will tell how these revelations by TU experts transform Nigeria’s Forex trading settings.
