Good morning, I apologize for my poor english, I'm not an expert and I need your help...

do you know how daily prices are calculated on Yahoo Finance Historical data? Let me give you an example, if you visit the EURUSD


Nov 24, 2020
open 1.1842 close 1.1843

where do they get the open price and the close price? what are the daily market open/close hours?

I've also checked the chart but the daily prices are different

Thanks in advance for your help Luigi

    $\begingroup$ I don't use Yahoo Finance. In the US, the "closing price" for stocks is 16:00 New York Time and for FX 17:00 NYT. These currently correspond to 21:00 GMT and 22:00 GMT. Check the charts (which are in GMT) to see if I am right. $\endgroup$ – noob2 Nov 27 '20 at 10:39

    $\begingroup$ Thanks for your reply, if I understand correctly what you're saying, the open price refers to the price at 22:00 GMT of Nov 23, 2020 and the close price refers to the price at 22:00 GMT of Nov 24, 2020, correct? I've checked the chart but unfortunately the prices are different from those reported in the Historical Data $\endgroup$ – Luigi Nov 27 '20 at 11:01
