Trade selected securities 24 hours a day.

With overnight trading, extended hours are available to trade securities at any time that market-moving headlines are breaking – 24 every day, five days, seven days a week (excluding holiday markets). We’ve widened our after-hours trading range to include international markets and industries such as tech, which means you’ll have access to more markets around all hours of the day.

A longer time for trading and more market opportunities

With news breaking every minute, the world of today’s high-speed connectivity requires a means to be able to respond immediately when market-changing developments occur. 24/7 trading isn’t just for traders in derivatives anymore; this functionality is now accessible on several of our most traded securities.
