Trading Hours

The TWSE operates in a consolidated limit order book environment, where only limit orders are accepted. During the regular trading session from 9:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m., buy and sell orders can interact to determine the execution price subject to applicable auto-matching rules. Orders can be entered half an hour before the regular trading session.
In addition to the regular trading session, the TWSE also offers other trading sessions as the followings.
