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 :)

    • I call it a wash and rinse - it happens often at swing lows and swing highs, as they are the obvious place for stops to be placed at, the "science" of the markets means that these places are often hit because of what the market HAS to do to move.    
    • No the share dealing account is subject to tax. You will need to make a seperate application for an ISA and it will appear.
    • Hello, my 2 pence worth, On markets like the FTSE it would be good to have an option to switch off the simulated candles, I.e only between 0800 and 1630 being displayed.  The trading out of hours is not for me and I find it quite tiresome having to trawl through the charts of simulated candles. Second pence worth, When IG tv launches it brings up a box over the deal ticket and has on numerous occasions caused me to miss the moment to place trade, Same when a trade is closed due to hitting limits or stop losses. I either have to manually  click on the X to close before I place a trade. Really really frustrating. Apart from this I am happy with IG and the service I have received to date. I am not on IG's payroll lol
