Europe and the USA are switching to Winter time 2016
European countries will switch to winter time on the last Sunday of October and the United States is going to switch to season time on the 6 of November.
Winter time adjustment will be during the night of 29 to October 30 in Europe. That is why do not forget to transfer your watch an hour back, for example, set 6 am instead of 7 am hours.
The transfer to winter time is scheduled on the night of 5 to 6 November in the United States. The clock will be set one hour back at 2 am local time. Daylight Savings is used currently 100 from 192 countries.
Due to the fact that European countries are moving to winter time one week ahead than the US. Forex market will open an hour earlier – at 22.00 CET on October 30, 2016.
But it absolutely does not affect the work of trade server. Market open will be midnight as usual.
