Needed to understand something. If aftermarket hours a stock goes up , and stays up until 9:30 the next morning, does it open at the price that went up after hours? And if yes, If I want Buy a stock after hours do I pay what it closed at that day? Or the new price even though it's not traiding at that hour?

Im kein, if aftermarket hours a stock goes up why doesn't everyone just buy it then and there for the lower price of the closing the day before so that when it opens they're able to sell it immediately for the higher price that it opened up as?

I'm not familiar with after hours trading but basically 4:00 the market closes and you cannot trade until tomorrow 9:30, only some investors (Google for more info) are able to trade after hours (which is what causes activity after hours),
But if you'd be able to trade after hours then you'd pay the higher price and not the price at which it closed at 4:00.

Not sure if that's 100% correct. From what I gather most if not all stocks can have after hours activity. The reason not a lot of trades go down then is because there aren't a lot of traders willing to trade at that time. And if there are no sellers there can't be any buyers...

I might be totally wrong, that's according to what I remember from a long time ago, if I'm wrong just correct me.

Nah. After hours is not open for everyone.  And for those that are able to trade it works just like the reg day just witg extended hours. not sure what your "im kein" was about.

+1

You guys are asking as if there's some sort of set price that you can buy stock at after hours or at the open. The price that you can buy stock at any time of day is determined only by the amount someone else is willing to sell it for.

The price at the open is not determined by the previous closing price or after hour trading. It's simply the price that people are willing to trade for at that given moment.
If you don't care why would you comment?

Ha. Have you been following the rash of bad news Amex has had in the past 12 months, leading up to the announcement that they (need to) trim $1B of expenses? Losing Costco, losing the anti-trust lawsuit, losing on foreign currency exchanges from a steadily strengthening dollar, the death of the company president... in all not a good year. They are going to struggle no doubt; look out for some belt tightening on the beloved (but overly abused) cardmember benefits in 2016.

Fidelity lets me trade after hours. So did Scottrade and Tradeking and a handful of other online brokers I've used in the past. It's not that people aren't able to trade after hours if they want to, it's that they don't want to. Fewer market makers operating and fewer traders trading, much higher bid/ask spreads - it's not for everyone. Unless you're reacting to a specific piece of after hours news (e.g. earnings report) there just won't be a lot of volume.
