Hours of operation

Our hours of operation coincide with the global financial markets. Monday 6am to Saturday 6am (Singapore time). Please note: these times are subject to change during daylight saving time and certain public holidays.

Hours of Operation
No 01 Icon

You cannot close existing positions or open new positions when the markets are closed. You can, however, place or modify entry, stop-loss, take-profit and trailing stop orders.

No 02 Icon

Spreads (the difference between the bid price and ask price) typically widen before the markets close and could trigger orders and/or margin closeouts.

No 03 Icon

Market prices may significantly change or “gap” when the market resumes trading. This change could trigger orders, which would be executed at the prevailing market rate. For example, if a price moves against you, a stop-loss order may be triggered at a different price to the price specified on your order. This could result in additional losses.

Note: Ensure that you maintain sufficient margin in your OANDA Trade account at all times to avoid a margin closeout. To reduce the risk of a margin closeout, you could reduce or close your overall positions or add more funds to your OANDA Trade account. To reduce the likelihood of unwanted order execution, consider widening your take-profits, stop-losses or trailing-stops prior to the market close.
