ES Mini Trading Hours

Discussion in 'Index Futures' started by davewolfs, Dec 3, 2008.

  1. Sorry if this is obvious but on the CME Globex site the hours are listed as

    17:00-15:15 and 15:30-16:30

    What are the weekly and weekend trading hours for the ES mini futures?
     
  2. You already stated them. Sunday begins at 17:00.
     
  3. Open at 5pm cst on Sunday
     
  4. What about Friday and Saturday.

    What days are the hours of 15:30-16:30 applicable?
     
  5. Nothing on Saturday... and I believe Friday closes at 15:15.... then closed until 17:00 Sunday.
     
  6. M-TH
     
  7. So I guess that means that M-TH the market does not close?
     
  8. It does for 15 minutes then 30 minutes

    To recap in Central Standard Time:
    When you start trading at 5 pm on Sunday, you trade until 3:15 pm Monday , then closed til 3:30 (15 min), then trade for one hour til 4:30 , closed for 30 min til 5:00 pm, then reopens and trades til 3:15 pm next day when process repeats til 3:15 pm on Friday at which time it closes til 5 pm on Sunday. At least that it how it works on my computer with IB. Also confusing as to how they label the days. Stosh
     
  10. How's the liquidity from 5pm - 8pm (EST) weekdays? Volume worth trading or no?
