Additional Comments Regarding Market Holidays
  • Exchange rules dictate that when a holiday falls on a Saturday, the market will observe it the preceding Friday unless it is the end of a monthly or annual accounting period. In such circumstances where Friday, December 31st is the end of both, i.e. a monthly and annual accounting period, the markets will be open for trading on this day as well as the following Monday.
  • Although the day after Thanksgiving is not regarded as an official holiday, it is a market tradition to close the exchanges at 1:00 pm on such days.
  • Whenever a market holiday occurs on a Sunday, the exchanges will be closed for trading business on the following Monday.
  • Note that the U.S. bond market is less centralized than the stock market, where the NYSE and Nasdaq exchanges share the same holidays. Bond market holidays are recommended by SIMFA (Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association) and not subject to the same rules regarding holiday closings.
