Trading Schedule Changes in February
There are some changes in the trading schedule due to public holidays in the USA and Brazil.
On February 15, the people of the United States celebrate Presidents’ Day. The holiday commemorates all the former US presidents’ achievements.
Thus, the following changes appear in the trading schedule:
- The markets for trading S&P500, YM, NASDAQ, WTI, BRN, XAUUSD, XAGUSD, Platinum, and Palladium close at 20:00 MT time (GMT+2).
- The markets for trading US Stocks and USDBRL are closed.
On February 16, there is an annual Brazilian festival – the Carnival of Brazil, which marks the beginning of Lent.
Consequently, there is no trading for USDBRL on this day.
Please, consider these changes when planning your trading activity.
