Stock exchanges around the world open at different hours to trade stocks. For example, UK stock market opening hours are not the same as those of Hong Kong or Japan because of common differences in politics and operating culture. Some stock exchanges also close for the lunch hour, mostly in Asia, while this is not the case in Europe and America.
Stock market opening hours also differ from those of other financial markets. For example, forex market opening hours are usually 24 hours a day, from Sunday evening to Friday evening. The three main trading sessions are in Tokyo (for Asia), London (for Europe) and New York (for North America). The overlap of these trading hours means that clients can open and close positions at any time in the Forex market.
NDDFX Trading Hours
Trading forex, commodities, and indices is a great way to make money. They trade 24 hours a days, 7 days a week. This means that trading forex, indices and commodities can be done from Sunday at 5:00 PM to Friday at 5:00 PM New York, as well as almost every weekday. This is a lot of trading!

A 5 daily candle week for all clients
The GMT offset is either +2 or +3 depending on whether Daylight savings time is in effect or not.
Spreads can increase when liquidity providers price NDDFX online (Monday session begin) or offline (Friday session close), as liquidity providers reload liquidity is low and liquidity is high. We close pricing 3 minutes before the market closes to make sure that clients aren't affected by widening spreads.
A daily 2-minute trading stop is available from 23:59 to 00:01 on the platform time. During this time clients will be able to see streaming prices. Orders cannot be placed during this break and orders can't be cancelled. This is done to protect positions from spread spikes that can occur when liquidity providers set prices at 00:00 Platform Time.
Your questions, answered.
The NDDFX server and graphs time is GMT + 2 or GMT + 3 when the summer transition is in effect.
Trading Hours – The Foreign Exchange Market trades 24 hours a day, 5 days a week. It is from 5:00 p.m. New York (ET) on Sunday to 5:00 p.m. New York on Friday. NDDFX quotes most Forex pairs from opening on Sunday until closing on Friday. The daily break time for Forex trading is 23:59-00:02 server time. During this time you cannot trade. Prices tend to fluctuate widely and are volatile due to the low liquidity resulting from the end-of-day processes at all major trading banks around the world. To combine the candles of the daily chart with the close of New York (5:00 p.m. ET), the NDDFX server time and charts are GMT+2 or GMT+3 when the summer transition is in effect.
High spreads and volatility are common in trading after hours. This is due to the lack of liquidity in the market. These products are also priced at the fair value of the futures underlying the commodity indices. Consequently, LPs must set a price after the underlying markets closes. This price should reflect the current value of the underlying market if it was still operating. LPs don’t have any way to hedge their risk during such periods so they must increase spreads to offset the increased risk.
Periods with increased spreads or liquidity shortages indicate a volatile trading environment. This can increase the risk of losing money.

Access to market depth on all account types
Depth of Market (or DoM), is a popular one that allows traders to see market liquidity. This refers to the number of trades on the market at what price.
Market liquidity is an important aspect for traders. If there isn’t enough liquidity in a market to match your orders your orders will be slipped or filled at higher or lower prices than you intended.
