What are pre-market and after-hours shares trading?

Pre-market and after-hours trading are extensions of the market session. They enable you to find opportunities before and after normal trading hours.

Online trading for CFD shares is usually only available from 5.30pm till midnight 12:00 (Dubai time), but with our extended hours you can trade for much longer.

  • CFD on All Session US shares
    12pm (midday) to 4am Monday to Thursday, and from 12pm Friday to 1am Saturday (Dubai time)

You’ll find our extended hours markets labelled ‘All Session’, to distinguish them from stocks only available in normal US market hours.

Why would I want to trade shares before or after-hours?

Trading on All Session stocks enables you to take advantage of any opportunities that happen outside the main trading window – like volatility around US company earnings and news announcements.

The importance of out-of-hours trading

Stock prices can see significant volatility as traders and investors react to company earnings announcements. The amount of movement largely depends on whether or not the results are in line with analysts’ estimates.

As most US companies release their earnings outside of the main session, the majority of trading takes place in the pre- and post-market sessions. This makes out-of-hours trading vital for taking advantage of earnings volatility.

This is just one example of how to use out-of-hours trading to your advantage. You can also capitalise on price movements around macroeconomic data releases, and major news events.

Trade over 70 key US stocks before and after-hours with us, including Apple, Facebook and Amazon.
