Market Status

Market Status Details

The Market Status API will return, in real-time, the current status of a market, including:

  • If a market is open or closed
  • When the market opens or closes next
  • The current trading phase (pre-, post-trading session, etc.)
  • If there is currently a holiday or irregular schedule

You can use these details to:

  • Build dashboards
  • Add countdowns or market status indicators to your website or application
  • Activate trading algorithms when markets open
  • Detect market holidays and half-days

Note

This API takes previously-scheduled holidays and half-days into account but does not factor in circuit breakers or halts.

Schema

FieldFormatDescription
local-timeISO 8601The current local time at the market.
statusStringOpen if it is currently a primary trading session. Closed otherwise, including for pre- and post-trading sessions.
reasonStringExplanation of the current response, including phase(s), holidays, and irregular schedules.
untilISO 8601Displays the end of the current phase.
next_bellISO 8601Displays the time when the market opens or closes next.
utc_timeISO 8601Displays the time in UTC.
timeISO 8601Displays the same as "utc_time".

Note

until is not always the same as next_bell. For example, if it is currently a post-trading session, until will indicate the end of the post-trading session, and next_bell will be the following morning when markets officially open.

Caching

The results of the status API will not change until until. It is safe to cache results until this time. Caching requests and using bulk API calls will help you avoid exceeding the rate limits.
