Extended hours on US stocks

Trade out of hours on 70 key US stocks.

What does 'extended hours' mean?

The US stock market opens from 3:30pm to 10pm (CET), which means many trading companies only allow you to trade up until 22pm.

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 - up until 2am Mon-Thurs and 11pm Fri (CET).
