TOMNext Rate/ Rollover fees and daylight saving BST > GMT




Does anyone know if the TOMNext rate is affected by the end of BST this weekend?

I’m guessing that if IG uses UK based servers then the daily rollover time is still 10pm, but I know this has been an issue in other brokers platforms for traders.

Does anyone know the answer?

Many thanks,

Hey  - just to confirm over the BST  > GMT clock change there will be no change to the over night funding time for tomnext FX rates (assuming you are based in the UK). These will still be processed at 10pm UK time. There are a few other things to note...


From Sunday 29 October until Sunday 5 November, the end of US DST, there will be a few changes to our opening hours:


  • US and Canadian markets will trade one hour earlier in UK time. For example, US and Canadian shares will be quoted between 1.30pm and 8pm
  • All forex markets will open at 9pm on Sunday 29 October and close at 9pm on Friday 3 November
  • 24-hour dealing on indices will open at 10pm on Sunday 29 October and close at 9pm on Friday 3 November
  • Shares- US (All Sessions) will run from 8am to midnight Monday to Thursday, and from 8am to 9pm on Friday 3 November


The dealing desk will also close early at 9pm on Friday 3 November.


From Sunday 5 November, the above will revert to their usual hours. Please also bear the following in mind.

Asian Markets
Asian markets, which do not observe DST, will trade one hour earlier in UK time than previously. For example, Hong Kong shares will close at 8am.

Digital 100s
Please pay particular attention to the expiry times of US and Asian digital 100s, as the proximity to expiry has such a large bearing on the price quoted. You can check these in-platform. Go to the 'information' section on the deal ticket in the new platform, or click the drop-down next to your market and choose 'get info' in the old platform.

Australian markets
Clients trading Australian markets should be aware that Australian clocks went forward by one hour earlier this month (two hours relative to UK clocks from 29 October).


NB: I have just moved this post and added to your post title. Hope this is ok - just thought it may be more beneficial for the rest of IG community.

    • US Dollar (DXY) Daily Price and Analysis US Q1 GDP may stall the greenback’s advance. A 20-year high nears for the US dollar. The multi-month US dollar rally continues with the greenback printing a fresh high today ahead of the first look at US Q1 GDP at 12.30 GMT. The US dollar basket (DXY) has been boosted by renewed weakness in the Euro and the Japanese Yen, as investors move from lower-yielding to higher-yielding currencies, while safe-haven flows continue to benefit the greenback. The US growth release later in the session is expected to show a sharp slowdown from the robust Q4 figure of 6.9%. The markets are currently pricing in growth of just 1% for the first three months of this year, with the slowdown mainly due to a reduction in inventory accrual over the quarter. This release is unlikely to move the greenback, unless there is a large miss or beat, as the Fed believe that 2022 US growth will be robust enough to let them tighten monetary policy sharply without damaging the economy. The latest US Core PCE data – the Fed’s preferred inflation reading – is released on Friday and this may have more effect on the US dollar than today’s GDP data. For all market moving economic data and events, see the DailyFX Calendar. The ongoing US dollar rally has been aided by weakness across a range of G7 currencies including the Euro, the Japanese Yen, and the British Pound. The Euro continues to battle with lowly growth expectations, exacerbated by energy concerns, the British Pound is mired by weak economic data, while the Japanese Yen is in freefall as the BoJ continues with its ultra-loose monetary policy.   The US dollar continues to press higher and looks set to break above 103.96, the March 2020 high. Above here the US dollar would be back at levels last seen nearly two decades ago. The March resistance will likely hold in the short-term, especially with month-end portfolio rebalancing at the end of the week, but US dollar strength is set to continue in the months ahead.
