Forex and CFDs are available for trading for only limited hours. The closed market hours are as follows:

1. Weekends

2. National Public Holiday

The exchange market is closed when there is a national public holiday in the country.

This closed marker hours come irregularly so you may want to check out the News Releases from your broker.

3. About 5 minutes at 00:00

This condition is different for each broker, so if you are awake and trading during the time, then you may want to make sure if the trading is available 24 hours full or not.
