Pre-market is a period where trading activity precedes the regular market session. Pre-market trading typically takes place between 8:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. EST. As traders and investors prepare for the regular session, they watch the premarket activity to gauge the market’s strength.
Getting a better understanding of premarket, Pre-market trading usually has low volume and liquidity; as a result, bid-ask spreads are large. Several retail brokers offer premarket trading, but it may be limited to certain orders. Generally, direct-access brokers can trade pre-market as early as 4:00 a.m. EST on weekdays.
This early in the morning, stocks don’t usually have much action unless there is some news to report. There is limited liquidity because most stocks show only stub quotes.
