A:

The New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq both trade between 9:30am and 4pm Eastern Time. All major stock exchanges trade at roughly the same local times in each of their respective countries.

The other major exchanges in North America are the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) in Canada, and Bolsa Mexicana De Valores (BMV) in Mexico. The TSX has regular market hours between 9:30am and 4pm ET, just like the NYSE and Nasdaq; however, the BMV is open from 8:30am to 3pm Central Standard Time.

In Australia, the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) keeps normal trading hours from 10am to 4pm Australian Eastern Standard Time. Not far from Australia is Japan, which is home to the Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE). The TSE is open from 9am to 11am and reopens at 12:30pm. The TSE closes at 3:10pm Japan Standard Time (JST).

In China, the Shenzhen Stock Exchange (SSE) keeps regular market hours from 9:30am to 11:30am, and reopens at 1pm. The SSE ceases trading at 3pm China Standard Time.
