British multi asset online trading firm IG Group (IGG:L) has today made a further development in its drive toward becoming more of a force within the CFD and stock trading sectors as it extends the trading hours for US stocks.
Throughout October and November, several major US companies will be releasing their quarterly earnings figures, with IG Group citing this as the reason for extending the dealing hours on key stocks in order that clients can trade when announcements are made after the US market close.
Companies which IG Group has listed as entities which are due to report their quarterly earnings figures include Bank of America, eBay Inc,Google Inc, Apple Inc, Yahoo! Inc, Microsoft Corp, Twitter Inc,
Facebook, and Tesla Motors Inc.
On this basis, IG Group will be quoting these markets from 9.00am to 1.00 am from Monday to Thursday and 9.00am to 10.00pm on Fridays (UK time).
IG Group has made the provision of stockbroking to an online retail audience a headstrong priority recently, having launched its stockbroking platform which offers live pricing on over 4,500 shares and is supported by analytical tools, charting, market news and videos and intends to simplify and reduce the cost associated with traditional methods of stock trading.
The full list of US listed companies in which IG Group offers trading of stocks is listed on the firm’s website, and can be viewed by clicking here.
