Hello,

I'm trying to improve my understanding of the Forex market.

Perhaps, what I'm about to ask is silly, but I would appreciate some clarification in any case...

As far as I know, the markets are closed to the general public (excluding big banks and such) during weekends... Why is that? Is there a logical reason for this? Or is it just because?

Also, at least in demo accounts, there is no market data available about what happened during weekends. Why is that information unavailable (to the public at least)? Are brokers also excluded from that information? My guess is that they don't have it either, but I'm not sure.

Any help would be appreciated.

Best regards.
