24-hour charts

Within the charts, the 1-day (1D) and 1-week (1W) charts will continue to show active market data even during overnight and pre-market hours.

Here's how to help you delineate the price changes in our charts:

  • During market hours, 9:30 AM-4 PM ET Monday-Friday, Today shows price and percentage change in price relative to the market hours opening price

  • Depending on what time it is outside of market hours, the following additional price and percentage change in price are shown during each of the following sessions as compared to the market hours closing price:

    • After-hours: 4 PM-8 PM ET
    • Overnight: 8 PM-4 AM ET
    • Pre-market: 4 AM-9:30 AM ET

This example chart for Tiger Corp, shows $1.76 for today’s closing market price change and $0.07 as the After-hours price change that reflects the difference between the current price and the market hours closing price:

FAQ

What are the potential benefits?

Trading your favorite stocks and ETFs during extended or overnight hours can help you take action in response to breaking news and get a jump start on potential market opportunities when regular markets are closed.

What are the risk factors to consider?

Check out Risk factors to consider that you should be aware of before engaging in trading during extended or overnight hours, such as: lower liquidity, higher volatility, changing prices, unlinked markets, news announcements, and wider spreads.

What types of orders can I place?

You can place whole-share, limit orders on any of the assets available within our 24 Hour Market list. For more details about limit orders and orders that aren’t available through the Robinhood 24 Hour Market, check out Why didn’t my order execute

What symbols can I trade?

You can trade any of the assets listed in our 24 Hour Market list, which includes some of our most popular and top-traded stocks and ETFs.

Also, if you place an order for a symbol that’s not currently supported, you won’t be able to select the 24 Hour Market session but can select a different trading session for it. For details, check out the Default order schedule and Extended-Hours Trading Disclosure.

What counts as a day trade?

When you make a trade during overnight hours (between 8 PM-12 AM ET), the trade date will actually be the next trading day. For example, if you buy 2 shares of ABC on Monday at 9 PM ET, and then sell 2 shares of ABC on Tuesday at 10 AM ET, it counts as a day trade. The calendar dates are different but the trade dates are the same.

Why are the spreads wider?

The spread refers to the difference between the price at which a security can be purchased and the price at which it can be sold. Lower liquidity and higher volatility in overnight or extended-hours trading may result in wider than normal spreads for a specific security, which in turn can cause you to receive an inferior price.

Why didn’t my order execute?

You can only place limit orders for the Robinhood 24 Hour Market. Limit orders don’t execute except at your limit price or better. Keep in mind, if your limit order doesn’t execute, it’ll expire based on the time-in-force (GFD or GTC) that you selected when placing the order.

Also, if you place an order outside regular market hours for a symbol that’s not currently supported, you won’t be able to select the 24 Hour Market session but can select a different trading session for it. For details, check out Default order schedule and the Extended-Hours Trading Disclosure.

Why do I have a restriction?

Your account may be restricted if flagged for pattern day trading (PDT). Check your day trade settings after 4 AM ET on the day after the restriction occurs to learn what you can do to possibly resolve it. Check out Pattern day trading for more details.

What happens if a company is going through a corporate action?

We may pause trading during corporate actions, just as we may during other times of day. Check out Mergers, Stock Splits, and More for more details.

Disclosures

Trading outside of market hours involves additional risks, such as increased price volatility and lower trading volume. You can learn more in the Extended-Hours Trading Disclosure.
