Tools for trader I: World clock on your desktop

If you are trading Forex like me, you should have some experience searching of world clock or time zone on Google. What is the time in London now? Has Japanese market closed now at Melbourne time 3pm? Forex is a 24-hour market, and volatility moves along with major market sessions. So, it is handy to have a world clock sitting on your desktop.

I have been using Qlock World clock since I started trading Forex and Futures. Living in Asia, and now Australia, I need to be aware which market is opened when establishing position.

Qlock World clock allows you to set up individual clock for each city of your choice, and even setup alarm. (So, not only for trader, you can use it to make sure you ring your love ones to say ‘Good morning, darling’ at the right time 🙂 ). Here is the snapshot of my desktop.
