They adhere to global trading hours, starting Sunday evening when Asian markets open (still Sunday in GMT) and continuing until Friday evening when US markets close (late Friday or early Saturday in GMT).

Since these markets operate globally, they effectively begin trading on Sunday evening with the opening of Asian markets, which is still considered Sunday in GMT. They conclude on Friday evening with the closing of US markets, translating to late Friday or early Saturday in GMT.
