How To Trade New York Kill Zones and Landon Kill Zones

The New York Kill Zone is a trading strategy that integrates price and time, focusing on certain time intervals with high volatility. This approach enables traders to identify high-probability trading opportunities using institutional trading reference points like fair value gaps (FVG) or order blocks (OB).

Kill zones are broadly classified into two types: the London kill zone and the New York kill zone. While our focus here is on the New York kill zone, it’s important to note that the concepts taught are equally applicable to the London kill zone
