There are a lot of equity exchanges in the world. If you want, you can do trades almost 24 hour a day. You can start with Australia and Tokyo in Asia, then move to Singapore, later trade in London or Frankfurt in Europe and finish on the U.S. markets.

Six different clock showing time around the worldI personally prefer to trade US markets as they are most liquid in the world. They also offer possibility to trade International stocks that are normally traded on local exchanges described below.

I also have little problem with time zones as time difference with Asian exchanges is quite big for me. But you can find it better to trade there, so you can check their opening hours below.
