When and What Currency Pairs Can I Trade?

All traders must be flat prior to 3:45:00 PM CT Friday through Sunday at 4:00 PM CT*. In the Trading Combine®, you can trade any other time during the trading week. To see what the current time is in the Central Time Zone we recommend using a Time Converter like the one here. Below is a helpful chart that shows the trading hours of our Forex Trading Combine.

Why it is Important:

  • You should only be exposed to risk when you are able to get in and out of the market.
  • Trades cannot be closed over the weekend, increasing risk to the trader.

*Our broker, Equiti Capital, has a intra-week break from 3:59 PM CT - 4:05 PM CT Monday through Thursday. During the intra-week break, your orders and P&L will continue to fluctuate with the market. However, stops, targets and all other pending orders will not be filled. We recommend keeping an eye on any open trades. If the market reaches the price of a pending order, stop, or target during the break, it will not fill when the break is over unless the market reaches that price again.

**Spot gold and silver trading are available 23 hours a day from 5pm CT Sunday through 4pm CT Friday. Trading is closed from 4pm to 5pm CT daily; however, you may place new working orders, or edit and cancel existing working orders.
