Stock Market Holidays : A Complete List

Stock market holidays : Introduction

The stock market is open on most of the holidays, with the exception of those listed below. These are typically observed by exchanges and securities firms and are therefore not observed as federal holidays. In this article we are going to see the complete list for both International(USA) Stock market holidays as well as the indian stock market holidays!

Also, Stocks tend to move more slowly than usual when they’re closed. For example, if you buy a stock on Monday before a holiday weekend and it closes down 1 percent that day, but bounces back up 2 percent when the market opens after the holiday, you’ll probably still be down overall for that.

How can I get around these holidays?

There are many stock market holidays, which can be a major timing challenge for traders. Here we discuss the most important stock market holidays that you should know about in order to avoid trading issues.

The New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, and other financial markets have many special days throughout the year when they do not conduct business. They are called “stock market holidays” or “trading holidays”. These days are times when members of the financial exchanges are not permitted to trade. It is important to know when these days occur so that you will not make any trades on those particular days.

Why Do We Have Stock Market Holidays?

From the outside, stock market holidays look like a nice break from the toil of trading :

# But in reality, they are much more than that. The stock market is open for business 24/7, and days off during this time are necessary to keep markets running smoothly. It’s important for traders to know the ins and outs of these days off, so they can make the most of their investments.

# They get a day off – Stock markets are closed on specified days throughout the year when major holidays fall on trading days. On these days, investors have a break from buying andselling which becomes important for traders in the long term!

To Wraps Things Up : Conclusion

Conclusion: The stock market is open every day of the year, with the exception of federal holidays. However, you should know that there are some trading limitations on those days as well. For example, on a holiday like New Years Day, it’s unlikely that you’ll be able to access your brokerage account and make trades for the entire day, since many companies will be closed.

With that being said, it is wise to take a break from your stock trading activities during these days. You can find out the list of BSE holidays via this link here, and NYSE holidays via the link here.
