US Daylight Savings starts at 2 am on the 2nd Sunday in March, thats March 8, 2009*.



*Thats 2 am local time in those states and areas that observe DST.
"States and territories in the United States that do not observe daylight saving time include: Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands and most of Arizona except the Navajo Nation Community." From timeanddate.com

Thanks Timmy, that's useful information.

It looks like the three-year trial of d/s in Western Australia, which ends this month, has failed. Newspaper poll this weekend indicated a >55% vote against when the referendum (our 4th) is held in May. The other three also failed.

Incidentally, Perth has permanent 20-min daylight saving, as the time zone goes through Kalgoorlie. With d/s, sunrise now well after 7am.

Cheers, Badger

They start early, and after Punxsutawney Phil declared another 6 weeks of winter back in early Feb.

Daylight savings for the US and Canada has started, so the US markets are back on the menu for a while for some of us!
