As an investor, you may have thought about investing in the markets of other countries. Many exchanges around the world operate around the same hours as U.S. exchanges, but in local time. This presents a few difficulties for U.S. investors.
This breakdown of the general stock market hours for the major exchanges around the world can help you coordinate your international trades. Times are listed both in local and U.S. time zones, as well as Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). Times reflect Eastern Standard Time (not daylight saving time), and it’s important to note that markets close for lunch in many countries. Exchanges may also be closed on different national holidays.
