Market Hours in Icelandic Time Zone


Many investors start their journey by trading the most commonly known shares. Suppose an investor in the Middle East wakes up, reads financial news and learns that an X Stock that trades in the US has increased by 20%. This investor then wants to jump in, open the investment app he just signed up with, and search for the stock. Unfortunately, the app tells him that he can only submit orders and wait to buy them immediately when trying to invest. So, the investor can only invest in some financial instruments.

Investors need to know that different financial instruments have varying opening and closing times. These times are determined by the asset class and the exchange where the asset trades. Additionally, some contracts expire on specific dates. This knowledge is crucial as it can significantly impact your trading strategies and the timing of your investments.

Understanding trading hours and market events is crucial for investors. Market events can impact some exchanges' opening and closing hours, potentially leading to a gap between closing and opening prices. To help you navigate this, we've provided detailed tables explaining market hours and events for the time zone in Iceland. We strongly recommend familiarising yourself with these trading hours to make informed investment decisions and avoid potential losses.
