    Are there any good reliable brokers which allow you to trade weekends?

    To the best of my knowledge, all the world markets close on Friday afternoon and reopen on Monday morning. Due to timezone differences, the market may either seem to stay open until early Saturday morning or will open Sunday evening, depending on where you live.

    I'm sure that somewhere out there, some brokerage is trying to find a way to go 24x7, but I haven't heard of any.

    Do you mean 24/7 for on line trading platforms or brokers offices where you get to call and speak to and deal with a broker direct?

    Many brokers do have 24/7 support available, but forex markets are pretty much 24/5.5. I can pull up charts right now, but won't get any new data or be able to place/manage trades until this evening.
