TD Ameritrade expands lineup of securities in 24-hour trading program to 24 ETFs


TD Ameritrade has made 10 additional securities available in its 24/5 trading offering, which now totals 24 products, allow clients broader exposure to markets during the overnight trading session. 

The additions come one year after TD Ameritrade became the first US retail broker dealer to allow investors access to trade select securities 24 hours a day, five days a week.

“In the digital age, people are accustomed to a 24-hour news cycle and headlines like the US-China trade dispute have a constant influence on the market,” says Steve Quirk, executive vice president of trading and education at TD Ameritrade. “That’s why TD Ameritrade was first to introduce online overnight trading, and improving that offering is all about delivering on our promise to innovate and provide greater value to our clients.”

The list of new securities nearly doubles the amount of products available to investors using the 24/5 trading session since its launch a year ago. The new securities include:

iShares Core US Aggregate Bond ETF (AGG)
iShares Core S&P Mid-Cap ETF (IJH)
ProShares Short Dow30 (DOG)
Vanguard Total Stock Market ETF (VTI)
Energy Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLE)
iShares MSCI Australia ETF (EWA)
Financial Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLF)
iShares MSCI Japan ETF (EWJ)
Technology Select Sector SPDR Fund (XLK)

TD Ameritrade introduced 24/5 trading in January 2018 based on a key client insight; 70 per cent of clients using TD Ameritrade’s research and education resources did so outside of regular trading hours. Further, Asia-based investors interested in the US markets had to invest during US daytime hours, not their own.

Extended Hours Overnight (EXTO) orders are up to 24-hour continuous orders that expire at 8 p.m. ET every day. For example, an EXTO order placed at 2am ET Monday morning would be active immediately and remain active until 8pm ET Monday night. A trade placed at 9 p.m. ET Monday night would be active immediately and remain active until 8pm ET Tuesday night. All 24/5 trades must be placed as limit orders, allowing investors to buy or sell only at the price they specify.
