What is After Hours Trading

It is the window period that one can trade after the market closes. The term after hours trading can be easily interchanged with ‘extended hours trading' or ‘after-hours market. The regular trading times on most exchanges are 9.30am to 4.00p.m. Thus, after hour trading occurs after 4.00p.m or before 9.30a.m. Specifically, it takes place between 8:00 am -9.15am in the morning. In the afternoon, it takes place between 4.15pm to 8.00pm. There are some instances where pre-market trading can occur at 6.00am until the market opens.
