Crypto Markets are closed?

Recommended Posts

Hi @D_Bakeeee, IG shuts down all their platforms around 10 pm every Friday for updates and maintenance, the crypto markets reopen at 4 am Saturday.

This question has arisen several times now by different members. I remember posting such a question myself around a year and a half ago. 

You may find answers provided by IG on previous posts.

Ideally you would want the Crypto markets to be open 24 hours and we may get there but in terms of other asset classes such as Shares and Commodities are all shut at some point within the week. Crypto is open longer during the week than Equities and Commodities so from a trading perspective that is great.

The question as to whether crypto markets are closed or not can be a point of high discussions.Cryptocurrencies definitely have an edge over many forms of currency but I think many people still need a guide on how to carefully transact with it.

    • Wow. Just look at the volatility. The price action is erratic to say the least. This has happened before on quite a few occasions in the past.  In one hour from my initial post to this post the price action has reversed. It is all about waiting for a clear signal for which direction these indices are going to go in. 
    • So you have to admit this S&P chart is as bullish as you could get, traders have been waiting for the Fed who haven't disappointed, have refused to break lower during that wait and are just staring at that ATH just a short reach away. Barring a war there seems nothing to hold back the continued march onward and upward. Daily chart; 
    • I think we now have the potential and it is potential shorting opportunity on Dow Jones (Wall Street), S&P 500 (US 500) and Nasdaq (US Tech 100) as well as other indices. The FTSE 100 is not looking too good in advance of Brexit. The 'daily' chart is looking rather bearish. The price action is looking bearish. However the price has not breached any of the key moving average indicators as of yet for the US 500. Hence why I am using the word potential in terms of trading opportunity. Some of the ultra aggressive traders will already be short the S&P 500 and other similar indices but if they are wrong the price does not continue downwards then they will be out quickly.
