Trading hours

  1. Hi All,

    Im from South Africa and trade the ALSI Top40 Index. This trades from 08:30 to 17:30 GMT+2.

    I've been looking into the FDAX, FESX and FTSE100 and am a bit confused as to what their trading hours are. They seem to be 24hours a day, but surely there is a main session where most of the trading happens?

    Please could someone offer some advice on how the trading hours of those 3 index futures works.

    Where would I go to find out what the trading hours for certain markets are? Especially those that trade 24 hours, as im a bit confused as to when the 'main' trading happens.

    Many thanks.
