Extended hours, after hours, pre market

Hi, I know the above is in the pipeline but can we have an update. I feel chained not being able to trade during extended hours on my ISA account. Pre market is the perfect time to sell and I have lost so much not having the ability to do so.

Thanks,

I feel the same. There are a lot of US penny stocks and they can have huge movements during these hours

Edit: for all the unaware people e.g. for the US exchanges there is pre-market (4am-9:30am EST), market hours (9:30am - 4pm EST), and after-hours (4pm-8pm EST).
We can only trade during the market hours which restricts us to 6.5 hours of 16 possible hours.
Interactive Brokers allows pre-market/after-hour trading as well as most US brokers.
Extended hours are also available for selected stocks on the CFD platform.

+1 for this on ISA and Invest. @Team212 not sure if this is already on the 2020 pipeline - can anyone confirm please?

+1 Since T212 is taking notes from Robinhood and M1Finance it would be great to have extended hours and not have to get jealous at Webull users.

Not even Robinhood has full pre market trading. I think they get 30 mins i.e. they can start trading stonks at 9AM New York time instead of 9.30AM.

Yeah the extended hours is a great Webull perk that they keep mentioning. Trading212 has the potential of becoming the best platform by picking and choosing what works for all these other US ones. Like the pie and autoinvest from M1Finance, and the whole no fee concept of Robinhood.

If they can’t offer extended hours for everything, it would be nice to be able to at least display the charts and check trends before and after market.

Maybe. I think it would also generate a lot of confused noise from people who think that our of hours is basically the same as buying and selling in hours and don’t realise the increased volatility, wider spreads, and less liquidity.

For my own part, I take the view that if I can’t make money in hours, I won’t be able to make it out of hours.

Until there are limit orders for fractional shares I won’t be using premarket due to the low liquidity

At least then we’d get a whole new bunch of questions to answer… :wink:

This is why I suggested having an opt-in with a big warning in the settings in another thread.
However, seeing all the rants on reddit about CFD tells me that you could place 100 warnings and people would still skip it …

@EBITDA any reply from the T212 team?

No I haven’t received any update for those asking in the replies. Just a thought, for those of us that want this, and also to deter new investors from trading during these volatile hours, why not make it a premium service? I would be more than happy to pay a small monthly fee for the privilege. @David @Martin
