What does 'extended hours' mean?

The US stock market opens from 2:30pm to 9pm London time, which means many UK-based trading companies only allow you to trade up until 9pm.

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 and spread bet on dozens of key US stocks at the most important times - up until 1am Mon-Thurs and 10pm Fri (London time).

Stocks available for extended-hours trading listed by their exchange

US earnings season schedule

  • Several major companies will release their quarterly figures throughout April, May and June

These shares will appear under the ‘Shares – US (All Sessions)' folder in the Finder.
