In a move aimed at democratizing global investing, Dallas-based Apex Fintech Solutions launched 24-hour trading capability available five days a week. Whether you’re in Dallas or New York or New Delhi.
The new feature, which launched publicly today, will allow the firm’s clients to trade beyond the conventional U.S. market hours—a critical enhancement in a time when digital wealth management is redefining the global financial landscape.
Apex began overnight trading for clients in February 2023. “Several industry-leading clients are already using Apex to access the 24/5 marketplace,” the fintech said.
Known as a “fintech for fintechs,” Apex’s digital ecosystem includes custody and clearing, advisory, institutional, digital assets, and SaaS services through its various brands.
Imagine a world where the stock market never sleeps
With the introduction of its new 24/5 feature, Apex says, investors worldwide will no longer be confined by U.S. East Coast market hours.
Apex aims to make trading more accessible for everyone, no matter where they live or when they prefer to trade, the company said in its announcement.
The new feature can make it easier for everyone to participate in the financial markets.
By expanding the availability of extended hours trading to more investors through the fintech firms it services, Apex gives its clients—fintech companies—the ability to let their customers trade 24 hours a day, from Sunday evening to Friday evening.
That opens up the potential for retail investor—everyday individuals who buy and sell securities for personal accounts—to trade during these extended hours.
‘Trade in your time zone’
“Here at Apex, our mission is to bring frictionless investing to everyone,” said Bill Capuzzi, CEO of Apex Fintech Solutions. “Now, no matter where you sit around the world, you have the opportunity to trade in your timezone.
It’s just “one step in the development of a market structure that will better democratize access to investing worldwide,” Capuzzi said.
From 8 p.m. EST Sunday through to 8 p.m. EST Friday during non-holiday weeks, Apex clients can place trades, according to the company.
Apex acknowledges potential concerns around overnight trading, such as uncertain prices and low liquidity. The company says it “understands the need for our clients to accommodate this feature and the firm is prepared to offer the capability, along with the customer service they have come to expect.”
