Extended hours on US stocks

Make the most of the US markets with IG 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 9.30am to 4:00pm (Eastern Standard Time), which means many trading companies only allow you to trade up until 4:00pm.

We know that many clients need to trade outside these hours to make the most of company announcements.  That’s why we’ve made it possible for our clients to access key US stocks during both the pre-market and the post-market trading sessions online.
