Most financial instruments are traded after hours (although with markedly smaller volume and liquidity levels), so the closing price of a security may not match its after-hours price. Still, closing prices provide a useful marker for investors to assess changes in stock prices over time - the closing price of one day can be compared to the previous closing price in order to measure market sentiment for a given security over a trading day.
