    I tried to put in an order afterhours, and it did not like it went through. Do I need to change some options to allow afterhours or pre-market trading in IB?


  2. Click on the day option and select fill outside regular hours.

    Also, IB is one of the few firms that allow after hours trading in options. The CBOE trades SPX, SPXPM and VIX options between 2am and 815am ct.
