The forex market is well known for operating 24 hours per day, five and half days per week. But at Traze, we offer several asset classes, each with different trading sessions and vary according to time zone.

To know exactly when a product is available for trading, you can view contract specifications on the Traze website or check from within the trading platform.

Forex products

The forex market opens on Monday at 08:00 in Sydney (22:00 GMT) and closes on Friday at 17:00 in New York (21:00 GMT). On the Traze MT4 platform, we begin forex trading sessions at 22:05 GMT and finish them at 20:55 GMT, allowing a 10-minute gap between trading days.

Commodities products

Most commodities, especially the highly liquid ones, are typically traded almost 24-hours per day, often with a one-hour break between trading days.

Indices products

We offer indices from around the world, and the trading sessions vary widely. Some highly liquid indices are tradable almost 24-hours per day, some have long breaks, and others are only available for a few hours each day.


We offer trading on shares from US-listed companies. The times these products are available are based on when the underlying stock exchanges are operating. The NYSE and NASDAQ operate between 09:30 and 16:00 New York time on Monday to Friday, excluding US bank holidays.

Check trading sessions in MT4

You can check the trading times of various products from inside the trading platform. From the Market Watch section MT4, located on the left side of the interface, right-click on the product and select “Specification” in the context menu to view the trading times.

In simple terms, no. We will not deliver any of the assets you trade on your accounts. Traze is a contract-for-difference (CFD) broker. A CFD is a type of derivative that is always settled in cash.

CFDs shouldn’t be confused with other types of derivatives, such as futures or options that do have physical delivery options.

For example, when trading CFDs, if you buy one ounce of gold, you’re not really purchasing gold; you’re opening a buy opening a position, which must be closed at some point in the future. CFDs do not expire, meaning you choose when to close the position unless it’s liquidated. When you close your position, we’ll settle the difference between the opening price and closing price in your trading account. If you’re profitable, we increase your account balance, whereas if you’re unprofitable, we’ll get the balance from your account. Under no circumstance can we deliver the underlying product.

The same principle applies if you trade other products that we offer, such as shares, oil or currencies.
