Some of our indices, including Germany 30, UK 100, US 30 and Euro 50, are available to trade out of hours, when the underlying market is closed.
Extended hours trading offers you:
Greater flexibility – open and close positions over a much larger time period, giving you more choice and opportunity.
Reduced slippage – as stop-loss orders and liquidations can be executed during the out-of-hours session, this could potentially result in receiving a more favourable price than you would if the market gaps on the open of the underlying market.
The way we price instruments out-of-hours is different from our in-hours pricing. As a result, our out-of-hours spreads are typically wider than our in-hours spreads. You can view an instrument's current spread details by logging in to the platform.
Our platform combines innovative trading tools with an intuitive interface. You can take a position on a wide range of products, including indices, currencies, commodities and shares. Our native mobile apps for iPad, iPhone and Android give you access to your account wherever you are.
*A minimum spread is the lowest spread that will be shown on the given product. If the underlying market spread widens throughout the trading day, or you are trading out of hours, the platform spread may also widen. The spreads shown are for the first price available for the average market trade/bet sizes in the relevant product. The spread will widen for larger trade/bet sizes, see our platform for more information.

Please note, the change in price that results in a P&L change equal to your stake size is represented by the last large digit in the price shown on the platform.
At the end of each trading day (5pm New York time), positions held in your account may be subject to holding cost. The holding cost can be positive or negative depending on the direction of your position and the applicable holding rate. Historical holding rates, expressed as an annual percentage rate, are visible on our platform within the overview section of each product.
