How To Buy & Sell Stocks | Pre-Market & After Hours Trading | TD-Ameritrade

what's going on guys welcome back to

another video in this video specifically

we're gonna be showing you guys how to

buy and sell stocks during pre market or

after-hours trading using thinkorswim

platform so let's get into sharing the

screen alright

right now we're looking at the S&P 500

spyder etf so for those of you that want

to trade pre or after-hours trading on

thinkorswim there's something that you

need to do to your orders in order to

make sure they go through pre market and

after-hours trading there is nothing

unique or special that you really have

to do in terms of your account most

everybody's account is eligible for pre

or post market trading there's really no

requirement there you know maybe if

you're on a cash account or something

but generally speaking if you're trading

on thinkorswim you have the eligibility

to trade pre or in after-hours trading

in the way you do it is by changing what

type of order you're actually using so

if I wanted to trade and let's just say

the SP here today pre market I went in

to buy it would not go through so what

you need to do is here on your active

trader window you open up your active

trader window and you're gonna go to

this gear icon once you go to the gear

icon it will bring up these category

boxes from here you want to be on the

left box where it says available items

under available items you scroll down to

where it says TI f you click TI f you

hit add items okay and now you can see

right here we have ti f4 de give me just

a couple seconds here I want to add my

drawing tools on the screen okay so we

have TI F right excuse me right here

that's what you want once you go into

the gear icon you add you'll have TI F

what you need to do if it were pre

market trading you would need to change

this day to GTC

x/t what that stands for is good till

cancelled and extended hours trading

meaning if you want to trade pre or post

market trading or after-hours what you

need to do is add this little category

called TI F to your active trader window

and you need to categorize it as GTC EXT

and that stands for a good till

cancelled or extended after-hours

pre-market trading extended our trading

once you classify your order as GTC EXT

you are now able to trade pre market and

after-hours trading in all orders that

go through pre market and after-hours

trading have to be done using a limit

order so again to trade pre market and

after-hours trading use your active

trader window enter to the gear icon

from there you ad TI F category and then

from there you will make it GGC ext when

it's pre market or after-hours and then

you would use a limit order to enter

your trade and it's simple as that so I

hope that helps you guys and I hope you
