Afterhours / weekend trading - basis?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I was wondering - for afterhours and weekend trading, when the indices are closed, what're the price movements actually based on?

For example, I discovered that there's weekend trading for the DJI just a while ago. Without having known this, I'd just have looked at the open on Monday and saw this it had gapped down (as expected). 

Under the hood, what's causing these changes in prices? I was under the (presumably wrong) impression that when the market is closed, no trading can take place and hence there wouldn't be changes in price.

The same would apply for stocks where after hours trading is allowed (e.g. Netflix, Visa where it says "all sessions").

Thanks so much in advance and best of luck to everyone this week ahead!

 

Best,

Garafont

Like any market, the prices of the weekend indices are dictated by demand and supply, in my humble opinion...

    • There is an interesting development in the price action for Copper as the chart below shows: Soybean is also looking interesting at the same time. Soybean Oil has been on a good run. I shall end this chart feast with Soybean Meal!  
    • told you he was good 🙂
    • Podcast interviewing Chris Weston, (previously of IG Australia). I haven't heard the whole thing yet but Chris is always worth a listen. I'm hoping he will talk about using implied volatility as described in the video of his posted in the Technical Analysis thread. https://futuresradioshow.com/podcast/286/
