It’s not only possible, but can also be even more profitable than your Monday through Friday trading. Read on to find out why.

But Why Trade on the Weekend?

That’s actually a good question: why trade when you can rest? Well, there are several good reasons for that. Let’s see if any one of those appeals to you.

Peace and Quiet

First of all, the weekend is the time to analyse the market in peace. There’s usually no major price action and very few distractions. It’s especially true if you’re one of many traders who have a day job that prevents you from dedicating more time to trading during the week. Home and family obligations can also get in the way, so for many the weekend is the only opportunity for some uninterrupted one-on-one with the platform.

Time for Analysis

That quiet time we talk about can also be the perfect time to practice strategies and analyze the market. The fruits of that labor can come immediately in the form of a well-timed trade or they can be delayed. Hopefully, you already know and use the Pending Order option Olymp Trade offers. You can spend as much time as you need doing technical or fundamental analysis on a Sunday to place an order for an asset that will go live on a stock exchange on Monday.

Higher Profitability

Last but not least: the weekend holds opportunities to make even more profit than usual. We’re talking about the Happy Hours on the Olymp Trade platform. Every now and again, you will see the profitability on OTC assets rise.

For Starter status traders — up to 82%

For Advanced status traders — up to 85%

For Expert status traders — up to 92%

Make sure you’re following Olymp Trade Facebook or Twitter to catch all the latest updates on upcoming Happy Hours.
