Trading Hours

ECN spreads from 0.0 pips

One major benefit of Forex, indices, and commodities trading is they all trade nearly 24 hours a day, 5 days a week.

That is from 5 PM New York on Sunday through to 5 PM New York on Friday, and almost every weekday of the year. That’s a lot of trading and opportunities!

Trading hours can also be viewed below or from within the MetaTrader and TraderEvolution trading platforms.

Markets Invest

Ensures a 5 daily candle week for all clients

The GMT offset is either +2 or +3 depending on whether Daylight savings time is in effect or not.

Market Opens

When the liquidity providers do their pricing in MarketsInvest switch online (start of the Monday session) and switch offline (end of the Friday session), spreads can be wider as the liquidity providers reset and liquidity is low.


To ensure that our clients’ positions are not blocked by the spread widening, we start pricing on Monday 2 minutes after the market opens and close it on Friday 3 minutes before the market closes.

Daily Trading Break

There is a daily 2-minute break in trading from 23:59-00:01 platform time. Clients are able to see the prices streaming during this break. No orders can be placed and pre-existing orders cannot be executed during this time.

This is to safeguard from positions with a Stop Loss getting hit by the potential spread spike that can occur over rollover when Liquidity Providers reset their pricing for the new trading day at 00:00 platform time (which is 5pm New York ET).

Trading outside of market hours generally results in high spreads and increased volatility. This is primarily due to there being less liquidity available in the market during these times. Further, in the case of indices or commodity futures, these products are priced as fair value estimates of the futures underlying markets. Accordingly, after the underlying market closes, LP’s have to formulate a price that represents where the underlying market would be if it was still operating. During these times, there is nowhere for LP’s to hedge their exposure so to account for the increased risk, they must increase spreads to offset their exposure.

Generally speaking, times that involve increased spreads and scarce liquidity are indicative of a more volatile trading environment that carries an increased risk level.
