TD Ameritrade is the first U.S. retail brokerage to offer extended hours overnight trading.1 Now you can trade select securities whenever it suits you best, 24 hours a day, 5 days a week (excluding market holidays).

More trading hours, more potential market opportunities

With news breaking overnight, today's highly connected world requires a way to react right when market moving events happen. 24 hour trading isn't just for derivatives traders anymore, the same functionality is now available on some of our most widely-traded securities.

Trade on your schedule, not the market's

Regular market hours overlap with your busiest hours of the day. Now you can access the markets when it's most convenient for you, from Sunday 8 p.m. ET to Friday 8 p.m. ET.

Find out how 24/5 trading works

  • 24/5 trading is available on thinkorswim and our Mobile Trader app.
  • The original list of securities available to trade included FXI, SPY, EEM, GLD, SLV, DIA, UNG, TLT, IWM, QQQ, USO and SH. These securities were selected to provide access to a wide range of sectors. We are adding other securities to the list over time to provide broad market opportunities for access to global markets.
  • Extended Hours Overnight (EXTO) orders are 24-hour continuous orders that expire at 8 p.m. ET every day. For example, an EXTO order placed at 2 a.m. ET Monday morning would be active immediately and remain active from then until 8 p.m. ET Monday night. A trade placed at 9 p.m. ET Monday night would be active immediately and remain active until 8 p.m. ET Tuesday night.
  • Trading after normal market hours comes with unique and additional risks, such as lower liquidity and higher price volatility. Your order may only be partially executed, or not at all. Learn more.
