U.S. Market Hours to Expand Under New Equity-Trading Platform

  • Blue Ocean Technologies to offer trading from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m.
  • Fintech’s clients include Virtu Financial, Jane Street

Blue Ocean Technologies LLC is launching an alternative trading system that lets investors buy and sell equities outside traditional U.S. market hours. 

The New York-based financial-technology company will allow clients worldwide to trade securities 24 hours a day, President and Chief Operating Officer Brian Hyndman said in an interview. The Blue Ocean ATS will facilitate trading with its broker-dealer clients starting Tuesday following a beta-testing period that began in June.
