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 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).

This offering is also available to share dealing clients, from 12pm-10.30pm Mon-Thurs and until 10pm Fri.
