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 11:30pm to 6am AEST, which means many Australia-based trading companies only allow you to trade up until 6am.

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 6pm-11.30pm Monday-Friday AEST
  • Post Market: Up until 10am Tuesday-Friday, and 7am Saturday AEST

This offering is also available to share trading clients, from 9pm-7.30am Mon-Thurs, and 9pm on Friday to 7am on Saturday AEST.
