US holiday coming up Monday, markets closed

Author: Eamonn Sheridan | Category: News

Is it 'Presidents Day' or 'Washington's Birthday'?

  • Bond markets closed
  • Stock markets closed (NYSE and NASDAQ)
  • Globex will be open until noon (NY time) on Monday, and then reopen at 5pm NY time
  • Forex ... expect lower volumes, skeleton staff (if any) at US banks, Canada is open closed (TSX closed) (thanks to Sid in the comments for the correction!)
On that question, the NYSE is quite particular about referring to the holiday as "Washington's Birthday", not "Presidents Day".
