Currently , Indian stock markets are open at 9:15 a.m. and close at 3:30 p.m. (IST).

As we all know, recently, the Indian market has shifted to the T+1 settlement cycle and now after that big move, discussing the extended trading hours surely indicates the maturity of the Indian market.

It’s important to see the changes and how the stock market extended trading hours may impact traders and other market participants.

With respect to the trader community, longer trading hours will make overnight market risk more manageable that leads to attract more market participants including mutual funds, foreign institutional investors (FIIs) and domestic institutional investors (DIIs) etc.

Longer trading hours might attract millennial investors too who can now explore the market opportunities after their office hours and can contribute to increasing trading volume significantly.

On one hand, extended trading hours will provide better accessibility to global markets and level the playing field for domestic traders against international traders as a result will increase the scope for more Indian traders to trade more with better opportunities to hedge the risk arising due to the global information flow in a more efficient way.
