Hours of operation in Australia


Trading is available from approximately 8am Monday to 8am Saturday (GMT+10). Please note, these times are subject to change during daylight savings time. 

OANDA's hours of operation coincide with the global financial markets. If you decide to leave trades open over the weekend, you will need to review our weekend trading policy

 
Ensure that you maintain sufficient margin in your account at all times to avoid a margin closeout. To reduce the risk of a margin closeout, reduce or close your overall positions or add more funds to your account. To prevent unwanted order execution, consider widening your take profits, stop losses or trailing stops prior to the weekend.

* Where exchanges' market hours are affected by daylight savings, the local exchange times represent OANDA's trading hours.

Trading hours are based on when underlying futures reference markets are open. OANDA CFDs will not be available for trading during holidays, in which reference markets are closed.

OANDA prices are calculated from the theoretical spot prices derived from underlying futures.

Please be advised that CFD products are not available to residents of the United States of America or its territories.

The Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) limits leverage available to retail forex traders in the United States to 50:1 on major currency pairs and 20:1 for all others. OANDA Asia Pacific offers maximum leverage of 50:1 on FX products and limits to leverage offered on CFDs apply. Leverage for OANDA Canada clients is determined by IIROC and is subject to change. Refer to our legal section.
