NSE Reportedly Planning to Extend F&O Trading Hours, In Talks with SEBI

The National Stock Exchange (NSE) is reviewing trading windows and trading hours for equity derivatives, according to news reports. H. Futures and options contracts (F&O) are extended on the platform.

 

 Apart from regular trading from 9:15 am to 3:30 pm, the country’s largest exchange may start a separate trading session for equity derivative contracts from 6 pm to 9 pm on the same day. Numerous reports have also suggested that this trading window could be extended to 11:30pm or 11:55pm.

 

 According to the report, NSE has already submitted documentation regarding the plan to market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and is awaiting approval. SEBI has already laid down rules for stock exchanges to allow F&O trading till 11:55 pm and stock trading till 5 pm. NSE plans to introduce extended trading hours in a phased manner. Initially, trading of index F&O contracts including Nifty 50 and Bank Nifty will begin. Trading in equity derivatives may also begin later in this second trading window.

Due to working hours restrictions of other market intermediaries, settlement of the second session is expected to take place the next day. However, there are no changes to the expiration dates and expiration dates for all products.

A second trading window could help traders manage their positions in global markets more efficiently. The expanded trading window coincides with Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) trading hours. This could allow traders to get the latest information on international markets. Additionally, longer trading times can increase trading volumes on exchanges.
