N.B. "Normal Hours" vary depending on the instrument. Please find specific details for each instrument in the Contract Specifications section of our website.

Please note that there is a higher level of risk involved in maintaining opened positions and pending orders over holiday periods.

Furthermore, periods such as this can increase the probability of wider spreads due to thinner liquidity in the market.
