Starting from this Sunday, March 12, 2017, the US starts their Daylight Savings Time. Due to the time change, our MT4 servers will have their clocks wound forward to GMT+3. The result of this will mean the session times for the below Contracts will show 1 hour later in the MT4 Marketwatch.
|Contract||Monday Open (GMT +3)||Friday Close (GMT+3)||Daily Break (GMT+3)|
|UK100||10:00||24:00:00||00:00 – 10:00|
|GER30||10:00||24:00:00||00:00 – 10:00|
|STOXX50||10:00||24:00:00||00:00 – 10:00|
|AUS200||1:50||24:00:00||8:30 – 09:10, 00:00 – 01:50|
|HK50||4:15||11:15||7:00 – 8:00, 11:15 – 4:15|
All other products will remain to have the same platform server times.
How does this affect my MT4 trading?
Once the platform time is GMT+3, the daily End Of Day (Rollover) will occur at 8:00am AEDT. All Forex pricing will start on Monday at 8.00am AEDT (New York Sunday 5.00pm) Morning and close 8.00am AEDT Saturday (New York Friday 5.00pm) Morning to coincide with this change.
Changes to your Expert Advisor?
If you use an Expert Advisor you will most likely need to change your offset setting from GMT+2 to GMT+3. Make sure to do this before the market opens on Monday morning.
