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).

Note that our extended hours apply only to spread betting and CFD products.

US earnings season schedule

  • Several major companies will release their quarterly figures throughout January and February
  • Trade even when announcements are made after the US market close
  • Make the most of the markets with IG

See below for the full list of companies and the dates of their earnings announcements

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