Financial Quarters in Forex Trading: A Guide

The financial quarter is an integral part of the Forex market. Generally, three months make up each quarter – January, February, and March; April, May, and June; July, August, and September; and October, November, and December. The start of a new quarter signals the beginning of a new opportunity for forex traders to enter the market. During the three months of each quarter traders have the opportunity to trade short-term, medium-term, and large-term trends on any currency pair. The end of a quarter gives traders the chance to close any positions that may be in profit, and reset their positions for the upcoming quarter.
