Is CFD trading limited to certain hours?
The hours for each CFD are determined by FXCM's Trading Desk based on the schedule for trading on the exchange for the underlying market, commodity, or asset. A CFD can only be traded during its designated trading time
Please refer to the CFD Product Guide for specific hours for each instrument.
FXCM aims to open markets as close to the posted trading hours as possible. However, liquidity at or around market open/close for any CFD instrument can be very thin. FXCM may delay market open on specific instruments by several minutes to protect clients from quoted prices that are not representative of the true market price. Traders are advised to use extreme caution during these periods and to utilize FXCM's basic and advanced orders types to mitigate execution risk. Based on the illiquidity illustrated during these time periods traders using market orders can experience slippage, or gapping in prices that can have a material impact on your final execution price.
