what is MCX MIS square off time?

Hard to generalise as day light savings kicks in. Best is to keep this generic rule in mind - MIS orders are closed 25 mins before market closing.

what are the months when day light happens?

Currently, the MCX market timings are 10am to 11.30pm.

Note: The closing time of the MCX markets are revised twice a year to comply with US Daylight Savings timings.


After the completion of the Daylight savings period, the MCX market timings will be revised to 10am to 11.55pm.

Usually MIS square off time is 10-15 mins prior to closing time of market.
25 mins before market close means 15:05 i,e 3:05 P.M
It doesn’t sounds good because then its too early.
