    any body know answer please
  3. i dont trade outside of regular hours, so im not the best person to answer this... but i think some ECNs open before the market does, you might have to rout your orders directly to one that is open.

    Anyone can do it. It's called pre-market trading. Look it up.

    Thanks - If anyone is allowed then I wonder why some of stock trading friends are actually not allowed to trade outside regular hours - their accounts are blocked to trade outside normal hours
