The holidays fall mostly on weekends, which mean that markets are closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year’s Eve, and NewYear’s Day.

Please be aware that during the first few hours aftertrading open, the market liquidity will be thinner than usual until the Tokyoand London market sessions begin. These thinner markets may result in widerspreads and may increase the likelihood of slippage & volatality.

This is largely due to the fact that for the first fewhours after the open, it is still the weekend in most of the world.
