What are IG's trading hours?

We are normally open 24 hours a day, from 11pm on Sunday (9pm for forex) until 10.15pm on Friday night (UK time). For markets that do not trade 24 hours (for example shares), you can find specific dealing hours in the deal ticket ‘market info’ tab.

Weekend Markets are currently available from 08:00 (UK time) on Saturday through to 22:40 on Sunday (20:40 for Weekend FX).

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

We do not open Christmas Day, New Year’s Day, Good Friday, or other days which are holidays in the UK, SA and the US. And if these holidays fall on a Monday, we may not open on the preceding Sunday night.
