Market Extra: As stock market rockets to records, TD Ameritrade to roll out round-the-clock trade

It’s sometimes referred to as the Wild West period of the trading day for its volatility, but extended-hours trading is about to get longer on at least one platform.

Online broker TD Ameritrade is set to offer its retail clients the ability to trade 24 hours a day, five days a week — a move which is likely to be followed by rivals.

Regular trading hours on the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq and other exchanges run from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern, but the stock market is also open during extended periods, from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m.
