Unlike many of the other holidays that have fixed dates, Easter holidays vary each year from March 22 and April 25. This year, Easter falls on April 12. Therefore, a lot of businesses are going to be closed or work on a shortened schedule on Friday, April 10, and Monday, April 13.

To reflect the upcoming Easter holiday period, IQ Option has announced changes to its trading schedule. On April 10, 2020, both EU and US stocks will not be available for trading whereas Forex will be available as usual. On April 13, 2020, silver, gold, platinum, and oil assets will be unavailable, as well as EU stocks; however, US stocks and Forex will operate during their usual hours.
