Options involve risk and are not suitable for all investors. Before trading options, please read Characteristics and Risks of Standardized Option (ODD) which can be obtained from your broker; by emailing email@example.com; or from The Options Clearing Corporation, 125 S.

Futures and forex trading contains substantial risk and is not for every investor. An investor could potentially lose all or more than the initial investment. Risk capital is money that can be lost without jeopardizing ones financial security or life style. Only risk capital should be used for trading and only those with sufficient risk capital should consider trading. Past performance is not necessarily indicative of future results.

I would allow GTC LIMIT orders to go into After Hours trading.
Don’t agree. There are excellent moves, some like clockwork, in the SPX500 and NAS100 overnight. They begin and end around key times: 1800, 2000, 2300, 0200, 0600, and 0830 when the Asian and European and US markets open and close. There’s plenty of liquidity for a 5 lot trader and you can make 100% of your $500 per lot day trade margin by trading through the night. Just wanted to share. Hope you make money every night. Thanks, John
