On Sunday the 10th of March, IC Markets trading servers will move forward by one hour from GMT+2 to GMT+3 as the US will enter daylight savings. .

While trading for most products will remain unaffected,  there will be a change in the trading hours.

How Does This Change Affect you?

The server time will be adjusted from GMT+2 to GMT+3. Trading hours for most currencies and commodity products will remain unaffected by the US daylight savings change. However, you may notice that some products will open 1 hour earlier on Monday morning as not all regions will move forward by one hour with the US.

Please note that the change to GMT+ 3 may affect your EAs and you may need to adjust the time setting prior to the 11th of March.
