Please note: trading schedule to be changed due to beginning of daylight saving time
Please be hereby informed that the daylight saving time begins in the United States on Sunday, March 8, 2020, and so the time difference between the USA and the EU countries will be reduced by 1 hour.
The time of MetaTrader 4 trading terminal will be changed by 1 from GMT+2 to GMT+3 to ensure that the market opens at midnight on March 9th. Accordingly, the trading session time of all European indices and stocks will be adjusted by 1 hour.
On Sunday, March 29, 2020, 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 of European market assets will be moved backward 1 hour and will become standard again.
Let’s take a look at the example of Dax (GER_30):
- Current opening hours of the index are from 09:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. server time.
- From March 9th until March 29th, opening hours will be from 10:00 a.m. to 00:00 a.m. server time.
- Starting from March 29th, it will be back to normal i.e. from 09:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. server time.
