Buying Selling Shares when markets closed


Recommended Posts

Hi, 
As we now have Easter holidays, I was wondering how shares are executed for London Stock Exchange and NYSE?
I've noticed that NYSE has pre-market and post market offerings, does this only apply to week days and not weekends/holidays?
If yes, then I suppose I cannot place a market order but a limit order in these periods instead and order is queued, when and at what price it it executed ? 

Will the same apply for LSE?

Sorry about all the questions, but thanks in advance.

Hi, yes IG shuts all markets at 10pm tonight with most opening Sunday evening. You can put an order in before market open but over any weekend and especially a long weekend you will likely get slippage (maybe even in your favour). (see hours link below). With current market uncertainty and volatility probably very risky though the weekend indices will open on Saturday if needing a hedge.

Hi, Thanks Caseynotes. If an order is placed pre or post market periods, does it get executed immediately at the current price (on yahoo I can see pre or post prices for US stock) ?

Hi, if I remember correctly the pre and post periods on the exchange are for institutional orders but IG makes their own market with many of the larger US stocks providing extended hours for those marked 'All Sessions'.

Stay away from those 'weekend' indices - they are exclusive to IG for a reason...

The thing is that with near 200,000 clients IG is big enough to constantly gauge buy/sell interest and so are able to provide a weekend market.

200,000 retail punters versus one or two big institutions or a central bank - no contest.

The large institutional/professional traders with IG make up by far the majority of size traded, not IG's retail traders.

Hi,

If I am trading in stocks (equity)  as a swing trader (1-5 days) in normal hours and set my stops (limit and loss), and left them open overnight can they trigger in out of hours (pre/post markets) ? 
 

Is this the normal thing to do when buying / selling equity as during out of hours stocks can become a lot more volatile and pose more risk?

Thanks

    • @CharlotteIG This is not frustration Charlotte, this is absolute anger, rage and fury; I have affected positions that are currently trading at a loss which could easily be in profit in a timescale acceptable to me - in the meantime I pay the associated costs, Saga being a prime example, yet IG are forcing me to take £000's of cash loss through no fault; IG have accepted a commercial contract on which they are now reneging at my significant cost
    • Maybe IG have decided that with such exceptional demand, they don't need to worry about long term clients.  The exceptional mob will not be around for the long haul.  As a result of what IG have done, long term clients may not be around for the long haul either.
    • Charlotte, we keep seeing the message that's it's small caps that have been withdrawn. It isn't.  For example, Hikma has a market cap of £5.2bn and is in the FTSE100. How do we know which other companies IG might decide to do the same to? We are also told that it's due to exceptional client demand. In that case, limit new opening positions (buy and sell). Why should we long-term clients suffer due to this?
