Changes to opening hours from 8 March



Changes to opening hours from 8 March 

Between Sunday 8 March and Sunday 29 March, US and Canadian markets will trade one hour earlier than usual in UK time. This is to reflect the start of Daylight Saving Time (DST) in the US on the former date, and British Summer Time (BST) in the UK on the latter.

Please note the following changes during this period (all times GMT):

US & Canadian equities (including equity options) markets will be open between 1.30pm and 8pm. As a result, dividend adjustments to US indices will happen at 8pm.

'All Sessions' shares will be open from 8am to midnight Monday-Thursday, and 8am to 9pm on Fridays

FX & cryptocurrency overnight funding will be applied for positions held through 9pm (5pm EDT)


On Fridays

• FX markets, commodities, 24-hour index markets and the dealing desk will close at 9pm, instead of 10pm

• New York Cocoa, Sugar and Coffee, and London Sugar all close an hour earlier

• Any expiring US markets will be settling an hour earlier than usual

On Saturdays

• Cryptocurrencies and weekend indices will open at 4am (as normal)

On Sundays

• FX markets will open at 9pm

• All 24-hour index markets will open at 10pm, instead of 11pm

• Weekend indices will be rolled over at 9.40pm, instead of 10.40pm
