HotForex would like to inform you that on Sunday March 9th, the United States and Canada will move to Daylight Savings Time. As a result, when the markets reopen on Sunday, there will be some changes to trading times.

Trading will start on Sunday at 21:00 GMT and market close will shift, temporarily, to Friday, 21:00 GMT. Normal market hours will resume on March 30th when European Daylight Savings come into to effect.

Please see the table of the temporary trading hours.

For clients running EAs, please ensure that you make the necessary adjustments to reflect the changes.

Server Time Change

Friday 7th of March 2014

Please be advised that Daylight Savings Time begins in the USA on the 9th of March 2014. Therefore, the GMT offset of the FXCC MetaTrader4 Server will be changed accordingly, to GMT+3.

This may require you to adjust your Expert Advisors or Indicators to the new time zone.

Should you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact our support team using the Live Chat, by email to or by phone on +357 25 025001.

FinFX would like to inform their clients that due to the Daylight Saving Time (DST) change in the US, Canada and other countries this weekend, your trading hours might be temporarily affected until Europe enters the Daylight Saving Time on Sunday, 30 March 2014.


On the following three Sundays the opening time will be one hour earlier at 21:00 GMT MetaTrader server time (equivalent to 5 PM EDT) on all FinFX Trading Accounts:

9 March 2014

Daylight Savings Time

Thursday 6th of March 2014

This serves as a reminder that Daylight Savings Time (DST) for the US ends on Saturday 8 March 2014.

On 8 March 2014 the FXPRIMUS MT4 platform will switch to GMT +3 until November. For further information on GMT and how it corresponds to your specific location, please visit the following link:

Server Time to GMT +3

Thursday 6th of March 2014

On Sunday the 9th of March 2014, the Pepperstone MT4 Server time will move one hour forward to GMT +3 hours.

Pepperstone bases MT4 Server time on "5pm New York", the internationally recognised end-of-day in the forex markets. The US will be changing to Daylight Saving Time on the 9th of March 2014. With the US turning clocks one hour forward the Pepperstone MT4 Server Time will also move one hour forward.

How does this affect me?

The only noticeable change that you will experience is that the Market Watch time in MT4 will now be set at GMT+3. This might not affect your trading at all - however, depending on your timezone, this may cause the market to open one hour earlier on Monday. The MT4 server time will still open at 0:00 on the charts, this may just be an hour earlier for your time-zone.

GMT Offset

If you are using an EA with a GMT offset time, then you must change the GMT offset to +3 just prior to the 9th of March.

Time zone offset change this weekend

Thursday 6th of March 2014

IC Markets will be changing the time zone offset on the server over the weekend. They will be changing the server time from UTC+2 to UTC+3 so it will be moving forward one hour. This change is in accordance with the Forex market session time changes due to Daylight Saving Time in the United States on Sunday 9th March 2014, and it remains in effect until Sunday 2nd November, 2014. The MetaTrader 4 platform time will remain at a market open of 00:00:00, and a market close of 23:59:59 throughout the year.

The new trading hours starting from Monday March 10th, 2014 are listed below
