Trading Hours

Forex trading hours are impacted by public holidays and other events. The alternate trading hours vary across global financial markets due to the fact that some countries have additional public holidays. In Australia, this includes events such as Australia Day, ANZAC Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday and Boxing Day.

Trading of specific instruments across Forex and CFDs are impacted as a result. Traders should be aware that trading day hours may vary on MetaTrader 4/5 and Iress. Please check the tables below which will be regularly updated in advance of any upcoming holidays.
