Pre-market and after-hours trading may offer benefits for traders, but there are also some potential issues that traders should be aware of before looking at trading these markets. 

In an article appearing on the Investopedia website entitled Trading in the Pre- and Post-Market Sessions by Tim Parker he explains the hows and whys of this type of trading:

What beginners may not know is the stock market is also open for business after regular trading hours. Pre- and post-market trading sessions allow investors to trade stocks between the hours of 4:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. during pre-market trading, and 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. for the post-market session.

Compared to the billions of shares traded during the day, after-hours sessions trade only a small fraction of that volume, which invites other problems traders have to consider before trading outside of the normal day. Can you make money trading before or after the bell? It's possible, but first you have to do your research.

Have you tried your hand at trading pre-market or after-hours trading?
