Trade during UK market opening hours
We can only trade from 08:00-16:30 UK time. This is not a problem for European shares but means that North American shares can only be traded from 14:30-16:30 each day (when both the UK and North American markets are open).
International shares traded in sterling
As we don't deal directly with the country of origin, we use CREST Depositary Instruments (CDIs). CDIs act as an envelope in which stocks can be traded in a currency which is different from their currency of origin.
