Daylight saving time - Impact on markets

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, 

As you're aware UK and European clocks went back one hour when daylight saving time (DST) ended on Sunday 27 October. From that date until Sunday 3 November, the end of US DST, there are a number of changes to our opening hours:


•  US and Canadian markets will trade one hour earlier in UK time. For example, US and Canadian shares will be quoted between 1.30pm and 8pm 
•  All forex markets opened at 9pm on Sunday 27 October and will close at 9pm on Friday 1 November  
•  24-hour dealing on indices will opened at 10pm on Sunday 27 October and close at 9pm on Friday 1 November  
•  US shares (all sessions) will run from 8am to midnight Monday to Thursday, and from 8am to 9pm on Friday 1 November 
•  In-hours trading on Eurex futures (including the Germany 30) will be available one hour earlier at 12:10am
•  Expiring US markets will be settling an hour earlier than usual
•  New York Cocoa, Sugar and Coffee, and London Sugar all close an hour earlier than normal
•  Weekend trading on indices will open at the same time (4am Saturday), but will close one hour earlier (9.40pm Sunday) 
 

The dealing desk will also close early at 9pm on Friday 1 November.

From Sunday 3 November, the above will revert to their usual hours. 

Thanks - Any questions just ask :)

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
