Attention! The trading schedule will be changed due to the beginning of the daylight-saving time
We would like to hereby inform you that the daylight-saving time begins in the United States on Sunday, March 14, 2021, and so the time difference between the USA and the EU countries, as well as the United Kingdom will be reduced by 1 hour. The time of the MetaTrader 4 / MetaTrader 5 trading terminal will be changed by 1 from GMT+2 to GMT+3.
The market will open at midnight on March 15. The trading session time of all European indices and stocks will be adjusted by 1 hour accordingly.
On Sunday, March 28, 2021, the daylight-saving time will take effect in Europe and the time difference between the EU and the USA will revert back to normal. This means that the trading session time in terms of European market assets will be moved backward 1 hour and will become standard again.
Let’s take a look at the example illustrated by Dax (GER_30):
- The current opening hours of the index are from 09:00 AM to 11:00 PM server time.
- From March 15 through March 28, opening hours will be from 10:00 AM to 00:00 AM server time.
- Starting from March 28, it will be back to normal i.e. from 09:00 AM to 11:00 PM server time.
From March 14 through March 28, 2021, the financial market will open 1 hour earlier for the Gerchik & Co’s European customers (at 10:00 PM CET* instead of 11:00 PM CET). Server time will not be affected by this.
