Most FX pair trading hours are 24 hours per day during the week, with a two minute break from 23:59 server time until 00:01 server time; on Friday trading ceases five minutes early at 23:55 server time, rather than 23:59, to prevent wide spreads as liquidity providers go offline at the end of the week. Trading hours are subject to change due to seasonal and market factors. Server time is set to GMT +3 while US daylight savings is in place, and GMT+2 when the US is not under daylight savings; this allows for the daily candle to close at the end of trading in New York each day. The New York close is widely considered the end of the trading day. There are some exceptions to the usual rules for a few currencies and other assets which are outlined below:
