On Tuesday 24 December 2013 and Tuesday 31 December 2013 trading on the cash markets will close at 14:00 CET. In line with the underlying cash markets, contracts on the Derivatives market will commence closing at midday.
On 6 May, 27 May and 26 August 2013, which are public holidays in the UK, it is anticipated that NYSE Liffe’s sterling-based products and London-based commodity contracts will not be made available for trading, but other products will be available.
As some other markets have not yet published their trading schedules for next year, more detailed information on the trading of relevant NYSE Liffe derivatives contracts, NYSE Arca Europe and SmartPool Trading, will be published in due course.
