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 00:30 to 07.00 AEDT, which means many Australia-based trading companies only allow you to trade up until 06.00.

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 19.00-00.30 Monday-Friday AEDT
  • Post Market: Up until 11.00 Tuesday-Friday, and 08.00 Saturday AEDT

This offering is also available to share trading clients, from 22.00-08.30 Mon-Thurs, and 21.00 on Friday to 08.00 on Saturday AEDT.
