Dear Traders,

Please note that on Thursday, 8 March 2018, currency pairs containing the Russian Ruble (RUB) will be closed for trading. This change is due to the national holiday that will be observed that day.

The specific changes are as follows:

Thursday, 8 March

Friday, 9 March



Normal Hours



Normal Hours

N.B. "Normal Hours" vary depending on the instrument. Please find specific details for each instrument in the Contract Specifications section of our website.

Please note that there is a higher level of risk involved in maintaining opened positions and pending orders over holiday periods. Also, the indicated trading hours are subject to change by the respective exchanges or liquidity providers. Furthermore, periods such as this can increase the probability of wider spreads due to thinner liquidity in the market.

It's always a good idea to keep an eye on our handy Forex Calendar, which will help you stay updated on all upcoming events which may impact the trading schedule.
