US Market Holidays: Overview (2022)

A market holiday is any non weekend day when the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, or bond markets are closed for the day. The NYSE closes for nine holidays each year, and the Nasdaq Stock Market follows the same schedule. The stock exchanges take two additional partial holidays annually, closing early on the day after Thanksgiving (aka Black Friday) and on Christmas Eve. On those days, the main trading session runs from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m rather than the normal schedule of 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • If any of the below-mentioned holidays is on a Saturday, the US exchanges will remain shut on the previous Friday
  • If any of the below-mentioned holidays is on a Sunday, the US exchanges will remain shut the next Monday
Here is the complete list of the major US holidays as considered by the NYSE and NASDAQ:

If a given holiday happens to take place on Saturday, the Friday before it typically becomes a stock market holiday. Similarly, markets typically close on the following Monday if the holiday lands on a Sunday. Sometimes, the markets close for national days of mourning, as the NYSE and Nasdaq did to honor the late president George H.W. Bush in 2018.
Note that the list of stock market holidays might be growing soon. Congress recently voted to make June 19 a holiday, commemorating the end of slavery – the 12th federal holiday. President Joe Biden is expected to sign the bill, and when he does, it would become the first new federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which was signed into law in 1983.
