What are the best retail brokers that offer after hours equity trading and why? A buddy of mine who trades equities with TD Ameritrade had a position which would have yielded him a real sweet profit but when he called his broker to offset the trade they said he could not offset it. He's asking me what broker to go to. My equity accounts are passive long term investing; I don't trade equities after hours. I trade futures. Any advice will be appreciated. thanks!
