Trading hours are set by our broker, ThinkMarkets, and SurgeTrader has no control over them. Traders can locate the specific trading hours for each product on the trading platform under Specifications. This can be navigated to by right-clicking on any product in the Market Watch window of the Version 4 or Version 5 platform and selecting Specifications from the dropdown menu.
On normal market days, Single Stock CFDs open 5 minutes after and close 5 minutes before normal US Stock Market hours (9:30 am to 4 pm EST, Monday thru Friday). Also, holidays can impact available trading hours for all products. Cryptocurrencies are typically available for trading around the clock on exchanges. However, when it comes to off-exchange cryptocurrency contracts for difference (CFDs), the trading hours are not 24/7 and may vary. Sometimes, these CFDs are closed for shorter periods of time on weekends. To account for this, you will need to convert the trading hours based on your specific time zone.
The Version 4 and Version 5 platforms operate in the GMT +3 time zone.
