While following Interactive Brokers (IBKR Mobile) Tutorial | From Zero to Hero on my iPhone, I noticed I don't have any numbers in the BID and ASK sections. What does that mean?

You took the screenshot at 8:02 pm (I'm assuming that the timezone is Eastern Time based on the timing of your post). The regular trading hours of Nasdaq is 9:30 am to 4:00 pm ET from Monday to Friday. The stock exchange has yet not commenced trading in TSLA, so there are no bid and ask prices. Check again tomorrow after 9:30 am (since your quotes are delayed, that might be after 9:45 am).

    TSLA trades a decent number of shares during the pre-market (before 9:30 AM EST) and during the after market (4-8 PM). Sep 24, 2021 at 0:42
  • Actually it was 8:02 AM in China when I took the screenshot

    @ebepem 8:02 AM in China is 8:02 PM in New York. 8:02 PM is outside regular trading hours.

    @BobBaerker Are bids and asks widely disseminated during after-hours trading?

    @Flux - If it has a bid/ask price then the quote is displayed during after-hours trading. Sep 24, 2021 at 12:27
