In basic words, after-market orders (AMO) are stock orders that are placed after the market has closed.
Orders for stock exchanges must be placed when the markets are open (9:30 am to 3:30 pm). AMO orders allow people to place orders outside of trading hours.
If you place an after-market order, the action you want (buy or sell) will be carried out the next time the markets open.
