Extended Hours Order Placements

How do I place an Extended Hours order?

To make your order eligible to be executed in the Extended Hours, simply follow these steps: 

  • Search and select the stock you want to purchase 
  • On the order pad, enable the Extended Hours toggle at the bottom
  • Read and Accept the terms and conditions if you haven’t already done so
  • Click review and submit the order

If I make my order eligible for Extended Hours, can it still get executed during market hours? 

By enabling Extended Hours, you’re making your order eligible to be executed in two additional sessions. If your order conditions are met during market hours, your order will be executed during market hours just like a regular trade during the market session. 

If your order is not executed during Extended Hours trading, it can then still be executed during regular trading hours provided that the conditions of the order are met. 

What stocks and order types are available during the Extended Hours? 

Limit orders are available for all stocks during Extended Hours trading, in addition to regular market hours. 

Market orders are available for approximately 1,000 stocks that have higher trading volumes and liquidity. 

What kind of expiry can I use with Extended Hours orders?

Using the Extended Hours toggle, your order works the same way as a regular order. 

For market orders, all orders are good for that day and cancelled at the end of the Extended Hours session in the event of remaining unexecuted or partially filled. 

For limit orders, if you’d prefer to submit a good-til-cancelled order, you can choose a 30 or 90-day expiry.

What if I don’t want my order executed during Extended Hours? 

You are not required to use this feature. If you don’t want your order to be executed during pre-market or after hours, simply leave the Extended Hours toggle off at the time of placing your order. 

If you have Extended Hours toggled off when you place an order outside of regular market hours, that order will simply be queued for the following regular market hours session (9:30am - 4pm ET).

How much does Extended Hours trading cost?

There is no additional cost to Extended Hours trading. The usual trading fees apply.

For further information, please refer to our pricing page.

Are there order limits with the Extended Hours trading?

There is a $150,000 order limit for market buy and sell orders with the Extended Hours toggle. 

Limit orders with the Extended Hours toggle have the same maximum limit as limit orders without the Extended Hours toggle. This limit is $1,500,000 in order size and 20,000 quantity of shares maximum per order. 

Why is my limit order not executing in the Extended Hours if I have used the toggle?

During pre-market and after hours trading, your limit order may not fill as there is lower volume and wider spreads in the Extended Hours compared to regular hours.
