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 :)

    • Great breakdown! Excited about the uptrend in Uniswap. Learning the ropes and your insights on Elliott Wave make it easier. Any tips for a newbie?

Current Elliott wave ii) correction incomplete but anticipated to finish soon. Concerns of SP500 and Nasdaq being dragged down, risking Wave ii) correction to 5000 and 18,000 respectively. Waiting for potential long trade setup late Thursday or Friday morning. Overall bullish trend intact; aiming to buy new highs to capture upside potential indicated by big tech stocks.
