E*Trade Group Inc. Tuesday became the latest online broker to offer after-hours trading to its clientele.
The company Tuesday reached a deal with Instinet Corp. that will allow E*Trade customers to trade Nasdaq and New York Stock Exchange issues from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Eastern. The service will debut in September.
The agreement also gives E*Trade customers the ability to check the price of the latest trade executed on Instinet for any issue.
"What our customers want is access to opportunity and a level playing field with larger institutional investors. It's all a part of democratizing personal investing," said Christos Cotsakos, E*Trade's chairman and chief executive officer.
Tuesday's deal follows an agreement between E*Trade and Instinet to invest in Archipelago LLC, another electronic communications network.
