Longbridge’s "US Overnight Trading" brings a new trading session for investors, allowing them to continue trading after the regular trading hours of the US stock market, catering to the changing dynamics of international markets and the needs of investors in different time zones. The overnight trading session is from 8:00 PM to 3:50 AM Eastern Time, corresponding to 8:00 AM to 3:50 PM Hong Kong Time (during Eastern Daylight Time) or adjusted by one hour during Eastern Standard Time, from 9:00 AM to 4:50 PM Hong Kong Time.

Investors can react promptly to global financial developments, adjust their investment strategies, and seize opportunities or mitigate risks. This initiative aims to meet the needs of investors from different time zones and geographical locations, providing more trading options for those who want to take advantage of cross-time zone opportunities or are unable to participate in daytime trading.
