Stock Market Holiday Schedule
The NYSE and Nasdaq stock markets typically observe nine holidays each year:
- New Year's Day
- Martin Luther King, Jr. Day
- Presidents' Day
- Good Friday
- Memorial Day
- Independence Day
- Labor Day
- Thanksgiving Day
- Christmas Day
In certain circumstances, the stock market will close early in the days preceding or following market holidays. The NYSE and Nasdaq will close at 1 p.m. the day after Thanksgiving; on Christmas Eve, if it falls on a weekday; and on July 3, if both it and July 4 fall on a weekday.
Bond Market Holiday Schedule
The bond markets observe the same nine holidays, as well as two additional holidays:
- Columbus Day
- Veterans Day
The bond markets also observe several early closings at 2 p.m. each year:
- Maundy Thursday (the day before Good Friday)
- The Friday preceding Memorial Day
- The day before Independence Day is observed
- Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving)
- Christmas Eve
- New Year's Eve
When it comes to the stock and bond markets alike, if a holiday falls on a weekend, market closures are dictated by two rules:
- If the holiday falls on a Saturday, the market will close on the preceding Friday.
- If the holiday falls on a Sunday, the market will close on the subsequent Monday.
