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

As usual, we'd like to draw your attention to the fact that there may be a higher level of risk involved in maintaining opened positions and pending orders over holiday periods. Also, the trading hours indicated above are subject to change by the respective exchanges or liquidity providers; changes in trading hours may also affect applicable pre-close terms.

Furthermore, periods such as this can increase the probability of wider spreads due to thinner liquidity in the market.
