Chapter 1: Sessional Liquidity concepts
The forex market can be broken up into four major trading sessions: the Sydney session, the Tokyo session, the London session, and Trump’s favorite time to tweet (before he was banned), the New York session.

Historically, the forex market has three peak trading sessions. Traders often focus on one of the three trading periods, rather than attempt to trade the markets 24 hours per day. This is known as the “forex 3-session system“. These sessions consist of the Asian, European, and North American sessions, which are also called Tokyo, London, and New York sessions.

For that reason, a lot of trader put their stoploss right at the High or Low of their session, filling these price levels with liquidities. The market loves liquidities, they are like the “fuel” of the market. Price usually goes to these levels, takes out all the liquidities, and then returns to its original direction. This price behaviour indicates the presence of players – banks, institutions,... – driving the market to their own profit.

The same logic applies with Daily, Weekly and Monthly high/low levels.
