With IronFX, trading is not always OK at any time. The time slots in which you can trade are determined by the products you handle. Therefore, I will introduce the times when you can actually trade on IronFX.
First of all, trading hours include summer time and winter time. Summer time for FX trading starts from the second Sunday in March (US time), and winter time starts from the first Sunday in November (US time). During this period, summer time and winter time switch. The only difference between summer time and winter time is that the time is shifted forward or backward by one hour. The server time also changes at this timing. Summer time is GMT+3 and winter time is GMT+2.
|Summer Time||Monday 06:00～Saturday 06:00(Japan Time)|
|Winter Time||Monday 07:00～Saturday 07:00(Japan Time)|
Long holiday transactions
Basically, the trading market can be traded at any time during the times listed above. However, there are long holidays during the year. During the following periods, the support center and transaction hours may change, so please check the official page each time.
In the case of Christmas, which falls in late December, support centers and trading hours may change. Please check the official page at this time.
New year holiday season
Business hours will vary considerably from late December to early January. Business hours are always irregular during this period, so be sure to check the official website. Depending on the day, you may not be able to trade even though it is a weekday.
Golden Week refers to a long holiday that only exists in Japan. You can trade anytime from late April to early May during Golden Week, but please be aware that Japanese support staff may not be available.
The Obon holiday is a long holiday that only exists in Japan. In mid-August, Japanese support staff may not be available to assist you. The trade itself can be done without any problems, so just be careful about how the support center responds.
