Markets Trading Hours FAQs

Generally speaking, there is no time constraint on how long a trade can be open. Some brokers might set restrictions, but all reputable financial trading brokers will not. Theoretically, you could keep your trade open indefinitely, as long as there is a market.

The trading hours of the markets are theoretically endless. This is due to the fact that when the evening begins in one part of the world, the morning begins in another, and the local currency market begins to operate. Trading sessions follow one another or partially overlap, allowing traders to invest whenever it is convenient.

Traders frequently leave their trades open overnight for a variety of reasons. For example, swing traders could speculate that a stock price will rise the following day, so they keep their trades open as part of their strategy.
