Trading Hours and Holidays

ZERO Markets trading hours for MT4 can be found below. Please note that ZERO Markets MT4 server time and charts are GMT+2 or GMT+3 (when New York Daylight savings takes effect). We operate these server times to ensure a 5 daily candle week. All of our FX currency pairs trade 24 hours a day with a break for two minutes between 23:59 to 00:01. The trading week starts on Monday at 00:02 and closes Friday at 23:57.

We have implemented this slight delay and small breaks in the day to help prevent the widening of spreads during this time when liquidity providers go offline. For  further instrument specifications please Right Click on any instrument in the ‘Market Watch’ area and select ‘Specification’. Here you will be able to view the specific details on any of the instruments.
