Online stock brokerage firms offering extended hours(premarket and aftermarket)tradingOnline Stock Brokerage Firms Offering Extended Hours (Premarket and Aftermarket) Trading

Regular stock market trading hours are 9:30 am to 4:00 pm EST Monday to Friday, and the market is closed on weekends. On most US holidays stock market is closed too, but on some holidays it stays open with shortened trading hours: 9:30 am - 1:00 pm EST.

Trading outside regular stock market hours of 9:30 am to 4:00 pm EST is called Extended Hours Trading. This trading occurs on private trading systems, known as electronic communication networks or ECNs. Extended Hours Trading consists of Pre-market and After-hours trading.

Pre-market trading is trading that occurs before stock market opens at 9:30 am EST. Many brokerage firms offer it. The most common time period for it is 8:00 am - 9:30 am EST (with few brokerage firms offering Pre-market trading starting from 7:00 am EST).

After-hours trading is trading that occurs after stock market closes at 4:00 pm EST. Majority of online brokers offer After-hours trading, and the most common time period for it is from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm EST.

Extended Hours Trading has very low volume comparing to regular market hours trading. Because of that, investors should almost never use market orders and instead use limit orders when trading during that time.

In the table above you will find the list of online stock brokerage firms that offer after hours and pre-market trading along with time periods they set for it. Only Capital One Investing (Sharebuilder) does not offer extended hours trading at this time.

The list also contains the surcharges/additional fees for extended hours trading that these investment firms are charging their customers. As you see, trading at extended hours is extremely expensive with some of these firms.
