Interactive Brokers launches overnight trading hours, almost 24/5 in US ETFs
“Global investors need to respond to market-moving news whenever it happens, not just during regular US market hours. With Overnight Trading Hours on IBEOS, our individual and institutional clients now have greater flexibility when to trade and can take advantage of investment opportunities around the clock.”
Interactive Brokers has launched Overnight Trading Hours on the IBKR Eos ATS in a move that allows clients to trade select US ETFs 23½ hours a day, five days a week.
Overnight Trading Hours on IBEOS will also benefit Interactive Brokers’ Asian clients seeking access to US Equity Markets during their trading day.
IBKR clients can now trade at almost any time
