Exchange Hours

Exchange days, exchange hours and trading periods determine when trading may take place on SIX Swiss Exchange. Details of all regulations concerning times are set out in Directive 3: Trading[pdf]. You will also find further information on this subject in the trading guides.

On which days are trading and clearing possible?

SIX Swiss Exchange is open from Monday to Friday, except on Swiss public holidays. Exchange days are also clearing days. This means that trading takes place and that trades can be forwarded to the central counterparty (CCP) or central securities depository (CSD) for clearing and settlement.

In exceptional cases, SIX Swiss Exchange can also close on other days. All SIX Swiss Exchange market holidays are listed in the trading and settlement calendar.

At what times are trading and clearing possible?

  • Exchange hours: 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. CET
  • Clearing hours: 8 a.m. to 6.15 p.m. CET

What exchange periods is an exchange day divided into?

An exchange day has five exchange periods. The opening and close of trading depend on the trading segment and market model.

The opening and continuous trading periods together make up the trading periods. Continuous trading runs from the opening to the close of trading (with and without closing auction and Trading-At-Last). There are no breaks at SIX Swiss Exchange during continuous trading.
