Do Options Trade After Hours?

So, do options trade after hours? In a word, no. However, that doesn’t mean that you need only concern yourself with the prices of the underlying between the opening and closing bells. Binary events, such as earnings announcements or other news reports, often happen after trading has closed for the day on options.

Many of you may trade options specifically around those events in order to try to capitalize on such movements when options aren’t being traded. But specifically, as it relates to the expiration, you need to be mindful of what the potential risks are – and if you’re not comfortable with them, be sure to close/exit the position before the closing bell on expiration day.
