When can you buy and sell DARWINs?

A DARWIN is a 100% liquid financial asset, which can be bought and sold instantly, except:

  1. Market closure. If the DARWIN trades assets which are listed on a market which is temporally closed, whether it be for a bank holiday, a weekend, or between the hours of 17:10 and 18:00 (NY time) for certain asset with time restrictions, then these DARWIN cannot be bought or sold until the market has reopened again.
  2. During market rollover. As a means of protecting investors, and due to the noticeable decrease in liquidity in the market, between 16:59 and 17:05 (NY time), the Darwinex market will remain closed. The only exception will be Friday night, when the market will close at 16:55 instead of 16:59 (NY time).
