Rick Steves

“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

Steve Sanders, EVP of Marketing and Product Development at Interactive Brokers, said: “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.”

With the launch of overnight trading, traders using Interactive Brokers will be able to react immediately to market-moving news and conveniently trade at almost any time.

IBKR offers this feature on IBEOS in the following 24 widely-held US ETFs: FXI, SPY, EEM, GLD, SLV, DIA, UNG, TLT, IWM, QQQ, USO, SH, RWM, PSQ, AGG, DOG, EWA, EFA, EWJ, IJH, VTI, XLF, XLE, and XLK.

Overnight Trading Hours on IBEOS are from 8:00 pm ET to 3:30 am ET, with the first session of the week beginning on Sunday at 8:00 pm ET and the last session of the week ending on Friday at 3:30 am ET. Any trades occurring during Overnight Trading Hours will be settled on schedule as if they had occurred during the next US stock regular trading hours session.

All clients with US Stock trading permission will have access to Overnight Trading on IBEOS and can take advantage of multiple order types and free overnight market data.
