How do trade windows work?

What is a trade window?

A trade window is the window of time each day when Makara executes trades for clients.



  • All Makara clients have access to the evening trade window
  • This trade window begins at 9PM ET every day of the week
  • This trade window concludes when all orders have been completed

Changes to your portfolio made before 9PM ET usually complete during Makara's evening trade window. You will see updates after the window closes. Makara is a long-term investment platform, not a day-trading platform. We prioritize your long-term financial growth and focus on building features that enable smart financial decisions.
