    What happens during the curb session from 3:15 PM to 4 PM CT? I am seeing prices moving but we are not able to trade. Is this a session only for market makers or institutional traders to trade?

    And only IB allows extended trading for retail traders? I thought most of the brokers allow it for retail traders.

    One should be able to trade during curb session. Maybe your broker is faulty or provide less good service.

    Some brokers have a lot of businesses like HF's, CTA's and FO's as their clients so they provide great execution services.
