Trading hours

Trading hours are 24/7 with the exception of the daily maintenance period by Apex Crypto. Any pending orders not filled before this timeframe (which starts at 5:30pm ET and ends at 6:10pm ET) will be canceled. Custodians will not be able to approve trade requests during the maintenance period.


Stockpile does not charge commissions for the purchase or sale of cryptocurrencies. However, crypto trading with Stockpile is powered through our partnership with Apex Crypto, and a 100 basis point (1%) spread is charged by Apex Crypto on crypto trades. That covers the costs associated with facilitating transactions and storing crypto, which is commonplace wherever crypto is traded.
