2024 Stock Market Holidays: US markets are closed on these days

4.7/5 - (6 votes)

In the good ol' U.S. of A, stock are those weekdays when the big shots, the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and the Nasdaq, take a breather and shut their doors. We're talking about days that usually sync up with the federal holiday lineup, including the heavy hitters like Independence Day and Thanksgiving.

Now, these exchanges usually stick to the grind from Monday to Friday, kicking off at 9:30 a.m. and wrapping up at 4 p.m. Eastern Time. But, let me tell ya, they don't mess around on the weekends – no trading happening there.

And here's a little twist for ya: If a holiday decides to crash on a weekend, the markets might call it quits on the Friday before the big day. Good Friday and Easter often pull that move. Or, in some cases, they'll push the celebration to the following Monday.

Now that we've stepped into the new year, it's time to get the lowdown on the updated holiday calendar for the stock and bond markets. Check it out, folks!
