The program will be temporary extended in the period March 23 – June 20 if most brokers agree.

This decision was made after the bourse in Sibiu realized that 43 percent of the volume traded is completed between 9:45 – 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 – 5:15 p.m., but also because most local investors keep an eye on the American bourses.

The bourse is snappier after 3:30 p.m. when data about the core economic indicators from the U.S. are published and especially after 4:30 p.m. when the stock exchange in New York rings the opening bell.

The U.S. stock exchanges have a significant influence over the local capital market so Sibex deems investors should be able to make transactions during the time of session in New York.

The Romanian bourse suggests a trading program in two stages: from 6 to 11 p.m. with a preopening session at 5:30 p.m. and from 9:45 a.m. to 5 p.m.
