To begin with, you should keep in mind, when markets in different countries are opened. Every day starts with opening markets in New Zealand and Australia. Then go Asia and Europe, and then - United States. Because of different time zones, US markets are closed last.

You should also pay attention to the fact, that most trading operations (about a half) happen on British and US markets. Tokyo markets are very important too. If you want to trade intensively, it will be reasonable to find time periods, when all of these markets are opened.
