Listed below are the different trading hours in the different exchanges. Please note that all times listed below are Central Time, but Chicago, our home base also converts to Day Light Savings Time (CDT) at certain times of the year. From time to time the Exchanges alter their trading hours. When they make changes we do our best to update this list.

Some electronic markets are open on US Holidays, others are not. We do our best to send out notice by e-mail of Holiday Schedules as they are presented to us.

Please keep in mind that the hours that Linn & Associate staffs it's Trade Desk may differ from Exchange Trading Hours. When this occurs, clients can still place orders electronically as long as they are setup to do so and the exchanges "gateways" are open to receive orders.

Although we attempt to keep this listing current, please consult Exchange websites for current information.
