Darwinex Trading Hours for the 2019 Christmas & New Year Holiday Period

18 December 2019

Christmas is around the corner!

Please find below the Darwinex Trading Schedule for the 2019 Christmas and New Year Holiday Period. All times are displayed in UK time (GMT) and changes to regular trading hours are highlighted in red.

Also note that during the Cristmas and New Year holiday period spreads may widen and swaps may be affected by the ‘turn’ effect. The ‘turn’ effect is a phenomenon that exists in financial markets which is caused by supply and demand for funding over key dates such as year or quarter-end. This can create anomalies in the forward curves for certain currencies, and we are already beginning to see this priced into the year-end swap points that we receive from our liquidity providers.

Further, you may want to check out what happens if you want to buy/sell a DARWIN which has underlying trades open with different opening/closing times.
