Forex markets will be open but liquidity is expected to be low. Due to less liquidity, there may be increased volatility in the markets and slightly wider spreads. Please ensure that your account is adequately funded as these conditions can impact even fully hedged positions.

During this holiday, Pepperstone will continue to provide standard support and funding hours. Please contact us if you have any questions.
