Indian Stock Market Timings
During the normal days, the stock market works in 3 separate sessions as discussed below.
The Pre-opening session
The duration of the Pre-opening session is between 9:00 AM to 9:15 AM. This is further divided into three sub-sessions.
- 9:00 AM to 9:08 AM :
- This is the order entry session.
- You can place an order to buy and sell stocks in this duration.
- One can also modify or cancel his orders during this period.
- 9:08 AM to 9:12 AM :
- This session is used for order matching and for calculating the opening price of the normal session.
- You cannot modify or cancel the buy/sell order during this time.
- 9:12 AM to 9:15 AM :
- This session is used as a buffer period.
- It is used for the smooth translation of the pre-opening session to the normal session.
The opening price of the normal session is calculated using a multilateral order matching system. Earlier, the bilateral matching system was used which caused a lot of volatility when the market opened. Later, this was changed to a multilateral order matching system to reduce the volatility in the market.
However, most people do not use the pre-opening session and only use the normal session for trading. That’s why there is still huge volatility even in the normal session after the pre-opening session.
The time between 3:30 PM to 3:40 PM is used for closing price calculation.
- The closing price of a stock is the weighted average of the prices between 3:00 PM to 3:30 PM.
- For the indexes like Sensex & nifty, its closing price is the weighted average of the constituent stocks for the last 30 minutes i.e. Between 3:00 PM to 3:30 PM.
The indices provide the 15-minute session to the trader so, that if required they can modify their orders before the actual market proceeds for the day.
The window remains open from 9 am to 9: 15 am every trading day. at the same time, basic checks are completed at the operational as well as the technical level by the indices going ahead with the business session.
The timings of the Indian stock market are divided into three sessions:
- Normal session (also called a continuous session)
- Pre-opening session
- Post-closing session
Normal Bussiness Session
For the traders, who want to trade on specific indices, the stock market is operational between 9:15 am to 3:30 PM on any business day.
at the same time if you buy a specific set of stocks one day-1 you may choose to exit the same day ( Intraday trading) or any other day as per your preferences.
it is to be noted that brokerage charges may vary for these two types of trading
- This is the actual time where most of the trading takes place.
- Its duration is between 9:15 AM to 3:30 PM.
- You can buy and sell stocks in this session.
- The normal trading session follows a bilateral matching session i.e. whenever buying price is equal to the selling price, the transaction is complete. Here transactions are as per price and time priority.
- The timings of the Post-closing session are between 3:40 PM to 4:00 PM.
- You can place your orders to buy or sell stocks in the post-closing session at the closing price. If buyers/sellers are available then your trade will be confirmed at the closing price.
NOTE: Pre-opening session and the Post-closing session is only for the cash market. There are no such sessions that are available for future & options.
