We’ve removed the constraint of regular market hours, so that Wall Street stays open for you 24 hours a day, 5 days a week (excluding market holidays). You can explore new potential opportunities and even trade on them when it suits you best.

Trade on your terms.

  • React right when market-moving events happen
  • Take advantage of potential opportunities outside of market hours without being a derivatives trader
  • Access the markets when it’s most convenient for you, from Sunday 8 p.m. ET to Friday 8 p.m. ET
  • Also available on the TD Ameritrade Mobile Trader app
