Trading Schedule

1. Order Acceptance and Trading Hours

Trading hours are separated between a day session (order acceptance: from 8:30; trading: 9:00 to 15:30) and a night session (order acceptance: from 16:45; trading: 17:00 to 4:00 – except for the Rubber market). The night session for rubber is from 17:00 to 19:00 (order acceptance: from 16:45).

2. Clearing Period

For a regular business day, one clearing period corresponds to: “previous business day’s night session (from 17:00) + today’s day session (until 15:30).” The end of one clearing period will correspond to the closing of the day session.
The clearing period for the last business day of the year corresponds to: “previous business day’s night session (from 17:00) + last business day of the year’s day session (until 15:30).”
The clearing period for the first business day of the year corresponds to: “first business day of the year’s day session (from 9:00 to 15:30)” since there won’t be a night session following the end of the day session on the last business day of the year.
