Trading stocks all day and all night might be an ‘inevitability’ for investors

The stock market's daily open and close may one day have little meaning if an idea gaining traction on Wall Street becomes widespread.

24X National Exchange, a trading platform backed by hedge fund founder Steve Cohen, is seeking SEC approval to operate an around-the-clock exchange. There's interest in the idea from bigger players too: The New York Stock Exchange has reportedly polled market participants about interest in 24-hour access.

Several executives at companies that operate trading platforms told Yahoo Finance the shift from a traditional six-and-a-half-hour trading day to a never-ending one is becoming more likely — even if there are some concerns about volatility in late night sessions with low volume.
