Bulgarian Stock Exchange extending hours
In a bid to boost turnover, from July 2 the Bulgarian Stock Exchange is lengthening its daily trading sessions. Currently its trading hours are the shortest in the EU.
From July 2 the pre-trading phase will start at 9.30am and run until 10 a.m., followed by a trading session until 5.00pm. Post-trading will end at 5.30 p.m.
The exchange hopes to attract more international investors and increase volumes by aligning trading hours more closely with markets in Western Europe and North America.
