Trading hours

All times are GMT unless otherwise stated.

Daylight Savings Time (DST) is generally applicable in autumn and spring; however, it is not equally applicable to all instruments. There will be instruments that apply DST to USA times, with the EU or APAC times, while others may not apply DST at all. Our trading times are updated in the table below to reflect these changes as accurately as possible.

The table below shows the trading hours per instrument so you know when orders must be settled and find trading opportunities according to when a market opens or closes.
