Rest. Easy.

IEX is designed to provide execution quality by protecting resting orders.

Order types

We keep it simple. IEX offers five order types, some of which have innovative predictive capabilities that are designed to protect resting orders from trading during unstable, potentially adverse conditions.

The IEX Signal

The IEX Signal is designed to identify when the quote is unstable and helps IEX protect resting orders.

Trading hours

Orders may be executed on IEX or routed away from IEX during the Pre-Market, Regular Market, and Post-Market Sessions, collectively known as "System Hours". All times are in Eastern Time (“ET”).
