Daylight Saving Time Ends: Changes to Trading Schedule

Dear MTraders,

Please note that from 25 October to 1 November 2020, the daily trading breaks will shift one hour back, which means that the trading session break will open and close an hour earlier.

This temporary adjustment is needed because the US switches from Daylight Saving Time one week later than Europe does. Forex trading opening hours on Monday 26 October (00:05 EET) won't be affected. The closing time on Friday 30 October will be at 22:59 EET. Metals CFDs and US Market CFDs (Indices, Commodities) trading opening hours on Monday will shift one hour back.

The indicated trading hours are subject to change by the respective exchanges or liquidity providers. Changes in trading hours also affect applicable pre-close terms.


Trading Server Time Switches to GMT+2

Dear Clients,

Please, note that on November 1, 2020, FXOpen will switch its trading servers from GMT +3 to GMT +2. The GMT offset in the company's MetaTrader/ TickTrader platforms will be set to GMT+2, starting with the market opening on Monday (November 2, 2020).

The changing of server time should not impact your open trades or the process of opening, placing, closing and modifying orders. However, you should keep this information in mind while planning your trading activities. Also, do not forget to adjust the time settings in your Indicators and Expert Advisors accordingly.

Dear clients,

Europe changes the clocks back to Standard Time, for this reason on October 25, 2020 FreshForex trade server time will go 1 hour back and correspond to Eastern European Time (EET, UTC+2).

As Europe changes the clocks earlier than the USA, during the week from October 26 to November 1 trading hours for assets will be changed:

  • for currency pairs trading sessions on Monday start as usual at 00:05 EET. However, on Friday trading sessions close 1 hour earlier at 23:00 EET;
  • for other trading assets sessions start and close 1 hour earlier, except for CFDs on cryptocurrencies and indexes #DAX30, #IBEX35.

When USA will change the clocks, on November 2 trade server time will return to regular schedule except for CFD trading for #HSI index and MOEX stocks.

For the residents of cities and countries that do not change the clocks, trading sessions will shift one hour forward in relation to the local time zone.

Please consider this information, when planning trading on financial markets.
