DislikedJason, thank you for previous reply.
I have one more question for this week. Beside FXCM UK, I'm also using GFT UK as one of trading brokers, and I can trade indices (US30, UK100, AUS200, FRA40, GER30, etc) at any time and their indices value are moving up down all the time, but for FXCM, these indices are trade-able at certain hours only.
How does it possible for GFT, but not FXCM? Or what is really happened?
Please advice and cheersIgnored
Anytime and your questions are always welcome.
FXCM's trading hours for gold, silver, oil, and stock indices are based on when their underlying reference futures markets are open thereby allowing trades to be readily offset. Outside of these hours, you can still create and modify stop and limit orders, but you won't be able to close existing positions or open new ones. (Note: Anyone looking for the CFD trading hours can find them here http://docs.fxcorporate.com/user-gui...ide-ltd-en.pdf)
Some of the indices such as US30, SPX500, and NAS100 are tradeable nearly all day with a short 5 minute break around 4:15pm ET, whereas most of the European indices have longer break times.
