Your capital is at risk. CFDs can result in losses that exceed your initial deposit. Please ensure you fully understand the risks involved.

What are IG's trading hours?

We are normally open 24 hours a day, from 1pm Saturday to 7am Saturday (AEST). For markets that do not trade 24 hours (for example shares), you can find specific dealing hours in the deal ticket ‘market info’ tab. Otherwise, please see below for a brief overview of trading hours (all times are listed in AEST). 

Shorter opening hours may apply on UK bank holidays or US public holidays.

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 if these holidays fall on a Monday, we may not open on the preceding Sunday night.
