Global MT4 Trading Schedule

Trading Hours

FP Markets trading hours can be found below. Please note that FP Markets MT4 server time and charts are GMT+2 or GMT+3 (when New York Daylight savings takes effect). We operate these server times to ensure a 5 daily candle week.


All of our FX currency pairs trade 24 hours a day with a break for two minutes between 23:59 to 00:01. The trading week starts on Monday at 00:02 and closes Friday at 23:57. We have implemented this slight delay and small breaks in the day to help prevent the widening of spreads during this time when liquidity providers go offline.
