After hours with IB

If I get a data subscription from IB that includes after hours data, does Quantconnect support trading after hours fully? Any glitches I should know about?

Update Backtest








Yes, it does. When we subscribe to data, we need to specify we want include extended market data:

AddEquity("SPY",
Resolution.Minute,
Market.USA,
true, // Fill data forward
2m, // Leverage
true); // Extended Market Hours (default is false)

In this case, OnData will be called after market hours and we are able to place orders.
Then it is up to IB to accept/fill the orders.
