What are the market hours for options?
Updated this week

The majority of options contracts trade Monday - Friday from 9:30am to 4pm ET, and expire on Fridays.

On the day of expiration, you’ll have until 1pm to open a same-day expiring contract, and until 3:30pm to close a same-day expiring contract.

At 3:30pm ET, Public will automatically cancel any pending orders for same-day expiring contracts. Additionally, Public may start attempting to close out any same-day expiring positions that are at risk. To understand at risk positions, refer to the Understanding option expiration, exercise and assignment FAQ.
