Can I buy a stock when the market is closed?

Updated 25 February 2021: We have temporarily removed the option to request future market entry orders. This is one of a number of temporary changes to the platform in light of the huge demand we are seeing for our services. These changes will help to ensure that we can provide the best possible service to all of our customers - both new and old.


When markets are closed, you can place a market order, which is an order that allows you to open a position at the moment the market opens at the first available rate.

You can also set a regular order for a specific price.

Market orders will also be shown in the order tab in the portfolio page.
