Can I place trades during the weekend?
No, you are not able to place trades during the weekend. The trading desk opens on Sundays between 5:00 PM ET and 5:15 PM ET. The trading desk closes on Fridays at 4:55 PM ET.
Please note that orders placed prior may be filled until 5:00 p.m. ET and that traders placing trades between 4:55 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. ET may be unable to cancel orders pending execution. In the event that a Market GTC Order is submitted right at market close, the possibility exists that it may not be executed until Sunday at market open. Please use caution when trading around Friday's market close and factor all the information described above into any trading decision.
