Interactive Brokers expands overnight trading to over 10,000 US stocks and ETFs

Trading takes place almost 24 hours a day, 5 days a week

GREENWICH, Conn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Interactive Brokers (Nasdaq: IBKR ), an automated global electronic brokerage, announced the extension of overnight trading hours, now listing more than 10,000 stocks and ETFs from the US exchange. Interactive Brokers was one of the first brokers to use night trading on US stocks and ETFs; this best offer allows customers to trade an even wider selection of stocks from the US stock market almost 24 hours a day, five days a week. Clients now have the flexibility to trade more US stocks and ETFs at their convenience, and clients in Asia and Europe can trade a wider range of US stocks during local market hours. To ensure the night trading liquidity provided by Interactive Brokers’ alternative trading system (ATS) IBEOS, Interactive Brokers is now connected to the alternative trading system Blue Ocean ATS.

“Night trading is an important service that enables our clients to make timely trading decisions and seize investment opportunities around the clock,” said Milan Galik, CEO of Interactive Brokers. “By applying overnight trading to thousands of stocks and ETFs from the US exchange, our global clients will have more securities to trade and be able to spend more time trading, virtually at any time. When clients choose overnight trading to initiate an order, SmartRouting technology Sm IB automatically routes the order to the optimal trading destination for the night. »

Interactive Brokers’ regular market openings, extended hours and overnight hours allow clients to trade eligible US stocks and ETFs nearly 24 hours a day, five days a week. Night time is from 8:00 PM EST to 03:50 EST, with the first session of the week beginning at 8:00 PM EST on Sunday and the last session ends at 3:50 PM EST Friday.
