Can I place a deal outside market hours?
Market hours for the London Stock Exchange are 8am to 4:30pm.
If you’re buying and selling a fund, you can place a deal outside market hours, but it won’t be executed until the next valuation point. This is usually the next business day, but some funds are priced weekly – so you should check the fund’s research page for the pricing frequency.
If you’re buying or selling UK shares, you can’t place a direct deal outside market hours. For UK shares, you can place limit and stop loss orders outside market hours, but they’ll only be processed during market hours. We can’t accept stop loss or limit orders for international shares.
