Ep: 77 Trading During Pre-Market & After Hours Sessions
★ SUMMARY ★
in this week’s episode, what I’d like to do is share with you some insight about trading during pre-market and after-market hours.
I’m going to give you some insight about pre-market, after-market, trading in them, what is it that I do, what I don’t’ do, and that way you just get some insight if you want to trade pre-market or post-market.
In order to do this and show you some examples of what pre-market and post-market is, I’m going to be using the think or swim platform, with TD Ameritrade.
It’s just an easy platform to teach with, because I can make things larger and bigger, normally I do prefer the TC2000 for scanning stocks right here, or you can take a look at it at freestockcharts.com
But in general this platform, unless you have the platinum version, I believe, it doesn’t really allow you to see the pre-market and after-market hours, at least not very well.
I’m just going to use the think or swim to demonstrate this, because you can see here in the grey areas of the charting area that you can see that pre-market and after market, so first it’s after-market, and then the day will split, and then it’s pre-market that’s being shown.
It just depends on which stock you type in, whether that’s a Netflix, you can see all those little grey areas those are not regular trading time frames .
And if you go into the five minute, you can really start seeing those pre-market and after-market hours.
What is pre-market and after-market
First off, what is pre-market, after-market and give you the big picture of do I really trade during those time frames and is it worth it.
Long story short, pre-market and after-market hours are just not regular trading time frames, they are something after the 4 o’ clock bell, and something before the 9:30 opening bell.
You can trade pre-market quite early, I believe anywhere between the 4 am, which is the really early pre-market, but at 6 am, 8:30 am, is really when things start picking up, and you slowly can see that with the clock over here at the bottom.
