What can I do on Robinhood during the weekend?

You can still place stock and ETF orders, and invest in cryptocurrency, when the markets are closed. Here’s how it works.

Market Hours

Traditionally, the markets are open from 9:30 AM ET - 4 PM ET during normal business days (Monday - Friday, no bank holidays). This means that any weekend orders you place to invest in stocks or ETFs will be queued to process when the market opens on the next trading day.

Cryptocurrency Hours

You can invest in cryptocurrencies 24/7 on Robinhood Crypto, except during any down time for site maintenance. Don’t worry, we’ll notify you about any scheduled maintenance windows and their duration.

Keep in mind

You should consider the following points before placing weekend orders.

Risk of Higher Volatility Volatility refers to the changes in price that securities undergo when trading. Generally, the higher the volatility of a security, the greater its price swings. There may be greater volatility in placing trades outside of regular trading hours.

Risk of News Announcements Normally, issuers of securities make news announcements that may affect the price of their securities after regular trading hours. Similarly, important financial information is frequently announced outside of regular trading hours. When combined with potentially lower liquidity and higher volatility, this may cause an exaggerated and unsustainable effect on the price of a security and result in an execution price that’s unexpected.
