Asia-Pacific (Australasian) Trading Session

Forex trading sessions are loosely defined since there is no centralized market place in forex. In these forex trading system and forecasting studies we define trading sessions which are at least 13 hours long each (so that the time lag is between 0 and 12 full hours). In our usage the Pacific Asian trading session is the period of time from the trading hour ending at 7pm to the trading hour ending at 7am New York time, or 8am to 8pm Tokyo time respectively, or 12am to 12am London time.
