Stock market holidays 2023: is Wall Street closed for Presidents’ Day?
After a challenging year, the stock market started 2023 with cautious optimism. There is only one scheduled holiday in February that will give the new trading year a chance to really pick up speed. But after the President’s Day break on February 20th, there is no further market holiday until April.
US stock and bond markets were closed on Monday, but Dow futures are trading as normal.
Check out this list of stock market holidays in 2023 to find out if the market is open on days like Good Friday, Remembrance Day, and others.
What are stock exchange holidays?
A so-called market holiday is any day outside of the weekend on which the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq or the bond markets close for that day. Usually this holiday is something like Thanksgiving or Christmas.
On some public holidays or days close to them, equity markets remain open while bond markets remain closed or close early. Sometimes markets close for national days of mourning, as the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq did in 2018 to honor the late President George HW Bush.
If a certain holiday happens to fall on a Saturday, the Friday before it usually becomes a stock market holiday. Likewise, if the public holiday falls on a Sunday, markets usually close on the following Monday.
Regular hours of business for the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq are Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. ET. The markets are closed on weekends.
