India, 3rd May, 2023: Vested Finance, a leading US investing platform, is excited to announce the launch of Extended Hours trading. This feature gives investors access to an additional 9.5 hours of trading on each trading day, providing them with more flexibility and the opportunity to make trades at a time that is favorable for them.
With extended hours trading, investors can react faster to important events outside of core market hours, such as earnings reports or reactions to the news from international markets. This feature will help their customers capitalize on price movements when the US markets are closed. However, investors should also be aware of the associated risks of extended hour trading, such as lower trading volume and higher price volatility, which can make it harder to execute trades at favorable prices.
Viram Shah, CEO of Vested Finance, said on Extended Hours, “We are thrilled to introduce Extended Hours trading on Vested. One of the key issues our customers in India’s face is the inability to place trades during the day. With Extended Hours, customers can now execute transactions from 1:30 PM IST, and we believe that this will give them much needed flexibility in creating their US portfolios.”
Users can buy and sell fractional and whole shares with all order types during extended hours. The pre-market hours are from 4:00 AM – 9:30 AM ET | 1:30 PM – 7:00 PM IST, while post-market hours are from 4:00 PM – 8:00 PM ET | 1:30 AM – 5:30 AM IST.
It should be noted that Extended Hours trading is limited to specific stocks/ETFs and will initially be rolled out to Vested Premium users. Basic Vested users can opt-in for Extended Hours by upgrading to a Vested Premium subscription. To learn more about Extended Hours trading, refer to this blog.
Vested Finance has pioneered US investing for Indian customers. With Extended Hours, Vested Finance continues to innovate and make diversification easy for their customers.
