Attn: bridgeOMS Clients

In the event of holiday where pricing is shut down for a period of time, bridgeOMS clients should use the “Holidays” section of Mt4 Administrator to shutdown pricing for a specific securities group or symbol.
This will prevent the possibility of errant pricing/quotes from effecting your MT4 server.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns.

**Holiday hours will be posted on the website.

***Friday Close time will supersede any daily break.

****Bridge Clients: Please note that you may see pricing in some products between 4:30pm and 5:00pm (EST).
