IC Markets No Comments

Dear Trader,

Please be informed that on Sunday the 4th of November, 2018 IC Markets Metatrader server time will move backwards by one hour from GMT + 3 to GMT + 2. This change is to reflect the US Eastern Standard Time change taking place on the 4th of November, 2018

IC Markets Metatrader 4 & 5 server time is based on “5 pm New York”. As the time in the US will move back by one hour IC Markets server time will also move backwards to reflect the change.

How does this change affect you?

The time in the market watch window will now be set at GMT + 2, depending on your time zone you may also notice the market open one hour later on Monday. The charts will still show an opening time of 00:00 platform time.

Some EAs using a GMT offset may also be affected by this change, you should make the necessary adjustments to the GMT offset in your EA settings prior to the 4th of November, 2018 .

Please see the table below for the changes for the updated trading hours
