Shortly prior to the open, the Trading Desk refreshes rates to reflect current market pricing in preparation for the open. At this time, trades and orders held over the weekend are subject to execution. Quotes during this time are not executable for new market orders. After the open, traders may place new trades, and cancel or modify existing orders.
Please be aware that during the first few hours after trading open, the market tends to be thinner than usual until the Tokyo and London market sessions begin. These thinner markets may result in wider spreads and may increase the likelihood of orders being filled at a different price than the requested price, as there are fewer buyers and sellers. This is largely due to the fact that for the first few hours after the open, it is still the weekend in most of the world.
Trades and orders held over the weekend are subject to execution at the next available market price based on available liquidity. After the open, traders may place new trades, and cancel or modify existing orders.
