UBS MTF typically observes the market practice for open business days and trading hours. UBS MTF trading hours cover the continuous trading hours of the primary markets and where a primary local market is closed on a business day or will not trade a particular stock, the UBS MTF will be closed for that market or will not trade the instrument.
