Very few people are available to trade forex full time. Traders often make their trades at work, lunch, or late at night. The problem with this type of trading is that with such a fluid market, trading sporadically for a small part of the day creates frequent missed opportunities to buy or sell. This could mean a complete loss of funds if a position does not exist before the market moves against you or a lost opportunity to buy at a desirable price. These missed opportunities can spell disaster for the part-time trader.

However, there are strategies that can work based on a part-time schedule. For example, night traders may be limited to the types of currencies they trade based on volumes during the 24-hour cycle. These night traders must employ a trading strategy for specific currency pairs that are most active during night hours. An example would be trading the Australian dollar (AUD)/Japanese yen (JPY) pair or something less well known as the New Zealand dollar (NZD)/JPY or AUD pair. It is extremely useful to look at the correlation between the two currencies when choosing a pair, so having a block of time during the day to study the market and implement trades can lead to a successful strategy.
