Extended hours on US stocks

Make the most of the US markets with IG Bank and trade even when announcements are made after the US market close. Trade out of hours on over 70 key US stocks.

What does 'extended hours' mean?

The US stock market opens from 3:30pm to 10pm (Swiss time), which means many trading companies only allow you to trade up until 10pm.

We know that many IG Bank 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 - up until 2am Mon-Thurs and 11pm Fri (Swiss time).
