Trading Hours

What are HOB’s Trading hours?

We are normally open for trading 24 hours a day, from 21:05 on Sunday until 20:55 on Friday night (UK time), with breaks for rollovers. For markets that do not trade 24 hours (for example shares), you can find specific dealing hours under ‘specifications’ for each product on the trading platform.


Shorter opening hours, or market closures may apply on UK bank holidays, US public holidays, as well as other days that will normally be notified to clients in advance.
We do not open Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Good Friday, or other days which are holidays in both the UK and the US, and may also be closed other days which will be notified in advance.

House of Borse aims to open and close markets as close to the posted trading hours as possible. However, House of Borse may delay market open or bring forward market close on specific instruments in an effort to protect clients from quoted prices or executions that are not representative of the true market price if, for example, there is a lack of liquidity'.
