Investopedia explains 'Trading Session'


The investor's concept of the trading session has broadened in the past decade as after-hours markets, ECN exchanges and other technologies have entered the marketplace. This increased access to the markets and information can overwhelm an individual investor with news, but long-term investors know that tuning out the day-to-day noise of the stock market is a key element of success.
