Forex trading hours

With Alpari, you can trade Forex around the clock, 5 days a week:

  • From March to October: from 00:05 (GMT+3) on Monday to 23:54:59 (GMT+3) on Friday.
  • From October to March: from 01:05 (GMT+3) on Monday to 00:54:59 (GMT+3) on Saturday.

The Forex market is open 24 hours a day. Although there aren't necessarily any trading sessions, like with stock exchanges, banks in different parts of the world have different trading hours. In the table below, you can see when Forex trading opens and closes at banks around the world. When trading, you should take these times into account, as markets opening and closing can have an impact on the level of trading activity. Times are listed in GMT (Greenwich Mean Time, the time we typically use on our site), EET (Eastern European Time, the time used on our servers and in our trading platforms).
