Trading Hours

Each commodity operates within its exchanges trading hours. This should be an important factor when deciding to trade commodities. In the event the exchange is 'closed for trading' for your chosen commodity, the trading in the selected commodity is frozen until the market open for the next session. This means that you will not be able to close your trade until the open of the next session.

In addition to specific trading sessions, commodities also have their own expiry dates. All trading session times and expiry dates are available on the product information page.
