SPX Options in Extended Trading Hours

    I am writing this forum message at 9 AM EST.Does anyone have any experience in trading SPX spreads during ETH? From the T&S displayed in TOS, it looks like all the volume are single options. (TOS has a column on the right called Condition that often has the word Spread or Combo in it. This is entirely blank at the moment.)

    I'm wondering if M3's or calendars can be opened or closed during ETH? Obviously the bid/ask will be affected, but the question is how much or whether a trade is even possible as a spread (i.e., not legging). Any advice or experience would be appreciated.

    A couple months ago I had a standing GTC order to close a Road Trip (a BWB) on hitting a price target, and it filled around 1 AM PST. So it is possible.

    Thank you, Capt Hobbes. I will try to close some positions overnight and see what happens.
