Last day of the early start:

 

UK and European clocks go back one hour when daylight saving time (DST) ends on Sunday 27 October. From this 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 will open at 9pm on Sunday 27 October and close at 9pm on Friday 1 November

24-hour dealing on indices will open 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.

    • Hey @dmedin, our analysts did a piece on this yesterday you might be interested in.  https://www.ig.com/uk/news-and-trade-ideas/what-will-happen-to-the-premier-oil-share-price-after-the-electi-191210
    • They are expecting a good Christmas and will be opening a new robotic 🤖 warehouse in 2021.  So it looks good for a wee long.  🐮
    • When looking at these markets and the trading behaviour of the average retail trader it seems to me that many don't really understand the market they are trading, there are also psychological factors that influence decision making to the detriment of trading success. If you are not confident in your understanding of the market then you are solely dependent on technical analysis but TA is not a given, it can only play out if assisted by fundamental and macro factors, those factors currently point to bull continuation. So the US major indices are routinely hitting new all time highs, the retail trader thinks they need to sell the high in order to buy back lower (buy low sell high right) so the retail trader (the crowd) are constantly trying to pick the tops (and patting themselves on the back thinking they are being contrarian). The positioning data of IG clients tell us this is exactly what's happening. Every time price goes higher the sell position ratio increases, when price is falling in a down trend the buy position ratios go higher. So clearly this is all wrong, when price is continually rising you need to buy high and sell higher. You buy breakouts or pullbacks, you should not be looking to sell a bull trending market at all. So why do they do it? The market is too high (no it's not), it must be the bears turn (wait and see first), but I need to sell the highs, the saying says so (no, you're not an investor), the chart is looking 'toppy' (just no), the TA is pointing down (doesn't matter without fundy and macro assist). An understand of a market comes with experience, until it does stick with the basics and look for longs in an uptrend, don't try to second guess the market and end up constantly fighting against it.
