Could you believe that we can count off the remaining days of 2019? It’s the busiest time of the year for most of us. That said, it’s important to take note of the Trading holidays. The market’s open and closed hours are not always common sense, so here’s a condensed list of standards. All times are in US / Eastern, ET / EST, GMT / UTC-5 time zone. Operation is based on information about the brand equity of the CME Group Holiday Calendar. Recall that there may be different hours for food-related grain and other markets. As shown below, the main concern is the investment products/markets of the CME Group, such as the E-mini S&P 500.
Thanksgiving Day is November 28th, 2019. The day of Thanksgiving begins at 1:00 p.m. Start at 6:00 p.m. ET, this is it. The market ends at 1:15 p.m. early the next day (Black Friday, Nov. 29, 2019). ET, this is it.
The 25th of December 2019 is Christmas Day. Christmas Eve is, of course, the day before, December 24, 2019. The market will close early at 1:15 p.m. on Christmas Eve. ET, this is it. The market is closed before 6:00 p.m. reopening. AND Christmas day.
The 31st of December 2019 is New Year’s Eve. The day after, of course, New Year’s Day is Jan. 1, 2020. The business operates with normal hours on New Year’s Eve. The market will be closed by 6:00 p.m. On the Day of New Year. The daily operation/hours at that stage will resume.
Be mindful that trading around the holidays can be hard. Of example, the large players on the market may be absent, so brace of times of low volatility. In comparison, we will see consumer-related articles throughout the holiday shopping season. These reports can give rise to sudden volatility.
