Options trading hours
Most option contracts trade Monday–Friday 9:30 AM–4 PM ET, when the market session closes for the day. However, there are some underlying assets you can trade options on until 4:15 PM ET (these assets are determined by options exchanges). The assets eligible for late close options trading (i.e. trading until 4:15 PM ET) are typically exchange-traded products that track major market indices, such as the S&P 500 (SPY).
If you have expiration date trading enabled, you’ll have until 3:30 PM ET to open positions in same-day expiring contracts. We'll attempt to close out any expiring, at-risk positions starting at 3:30 PM ET.
Check out the full list of underlying assets whose option contracts are eligible to trade Monday-Friday until 4:15 PM ET.
