Business Days

London Stock Exchange plc. generally operates its Trading Services each weekday. It does however, recognise the Public and Bank Holidays of England & Wales and the impact on its Trading Services of these days are set out in the table below.

The operational hours of each of our trading services is set out in the Millennium Exchange & TRADEcho Business Parameters Document which can be found here.

Whilst the International Order Book  observes the same trading calendar as the rest of our Trading Services it operates its own Settlement Calendar. Click here to view the IOB holiday & settlement Calendar

London Stock Exchange will keep its days of operation under review.
