Interactive Brokers Starts Overnight ETF Trading

Your article was successfully shared with the contacts you provided.

Automated global electronic broker Interactive Brokers says it will start overnight trading hours on the IBKR Eos ATS today, allowing clients to trade select U.S. ETFs 23½ hours a day, five days a week.

Interactive Brokers clients “can now react immediately to market-moving news and trade at almost any time,” the firm explained, and clients in Asia will have access to U.S. equity markets during their trading day.

“Global investors need to respond to market-moving news whenever it happens, not just during regular U.S. market hours,” Steve Sanders, Interactive Brokers EVP for marketing and product development, said in a statement. “With overnight trading hours on IBEOS, our individual and institutional clients now have greater flexibility when to trade and can take advantage of investment opportunities around the clock.”

The list of the 24 widely held U.S. ETFs that can be traded from 8 p.m. ET to 3:30 a.m. ET, with the week’s first session starting on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET and the last session ending Friday at 3:30 a.m. ET, are:

  • iShares China Large-Cap ETF (FXI)
  • SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (SPY)
  • iShares MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (EEM)
  • SPDR Gold Trust (GLD)
  • iShares Silver Trust (SLV)
  • SPDR Dow Jones Industrial Average ETF Trust (DIA)

  • Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund ETF (VTI)
  • Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF)
  • Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE)

No trading will take place from 3:30 a.m. ET to 4 a.m. ET  to allow for the reset of internal systems prior to the commencement of early hours trading, a spokeswoman said.

Any trades occurring during overnight trading hours will be settled on schedule as if they had occurred during the next U.S. stock regular trading hours session.
