Extended hours on US stocks

Trade CFDs out of hours on 70 key US stocks.

What does 'extended hours' mean?

The US stock market opens from 00:30am to 7am AEDT, which means many Australia-based trading companies only allow you to trade up until 7am.

We know that many IG clients need to trade outside these hours to make the most of company announcements. That's why we've made sure our clients can trade CFDs on dozens of key US stocks at the most important times:

  • Pre Market: From 7pm-00.30am Monday-Saturday AEDT
  • Post Market: Up until 11am Tuesday-Friday, and 8am Saturday AEDT.

This offering is also available to share trading clients, from 10pm-8.30am Mon-Thurs, and 10pm on Friday to 8am on Saturday (AEDT).

US earnings season schedule

  • Several major companies will release their quarterly figures throughout January and February
