    Central Time (USA). Evening for me is after 3pm.
    I do understand Asia opens next but was wondering if their's any good currency pair to trade during that time period.

    Not Always..but quite often there is a breakout between 8-10pm EST on Eur/JPY and GBP/JPY.

    Sometimes big, sometimes small..
    Just grab some easy pips on the breakout and then wait for more active times

    GBPJPY is good.. however, I tend to go half the usual stakes compared with EURUSD and GBPUSD simply because it's a lot more volatile

    As someone new to trading as I am, I would think pairs with low spreads are great. A pair seems to be very active when its market opens. No one pair shows the same activity every time it opens so one will have to be careful. I like to always check up on the market news about the pair I'm looking at, to look out for surprises.

    You can also try scalping eur/gbp eur/chf from 15 - 21 EST, you could easily pocket 25 - 100 pips a night scalping those. (assuming you have a decent spread, anything lower than 3.5)
