On 10/27/2019, Europe switches to winter time - Gerchik & Co
Attention! On october 27th, the schedule of trading sessions shall be changed

Dear Gerchik & Co customers!

Please be informed that during the time period from October 27th to November 3d, the trading session schedule in the financial markets shall be changed!

This is explained by reduced time zone difference between Europe and the United States of America. Make sure to pay close attention to the changed schedule and take this into consideration when planning your trades!

On October 27th, the clocks in Europe shall be turned back by 1 hour due to the end of daylight-saving time - the European countries shall switch to the winter time. This will reduce the existing time difference with the United States of America.

The Americans will switch to winter time one week later, on November 3d. Once this is done, the difference between time zones will get back to the previous figures.

The commencement and ending of the trading sessions with respect to certain financial instruments during the time period from October 27th to November 3d shall be changed. By checking the table below, you can learn detailed information regarding the aforementioned changes.

The trading schedule in Forex during winter time

From October 27th to November 3d, the trading involving European CFDs, including the German GER_30, Spanish ESP_35 and others shall start and end one hour later.

Starting from November 3d, the time of the trading servers shall be changed to GMT+2 from the regular GMT+3. After that, the trading sessions shall start and end according to the previously existing schedule.

Forex market will open one hour earlier. Instead of 0:00 AM on October 28th Eastern European Time (EET), it will be available at 11:00 PM on October 27th EET.
