Fall is in full swing, but there are still plenty of trading days left in the year. The NYSE, Nasdaq and US bond markets were closed for Thanksgiving on Thursday, November 24. Wall Street and the bond markets will reopen for Black Friday on November 25, but they will close earlier. They are two of the last market holidays for 2022 as the year comes to an end.
Check out this list of stock market holidays in 2022 to see if the stock market is open on days like Veterans Day, Christmas Eve and others.
What are stock market holidays?
A so-called market holiday is any non-weekend day on which the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq or bond markets close that day. Usually that holiday is something like Thanksgiving or Christmas.
On some holidays, or days after, stock markets remain open, while bond markets remain closed or close earlier. Sometimes markets close for national mourning, as the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq did in honor of the late President George HW Bush in 2018.
If a particular holiday falls on a Saturday, the Friday before will generally be a stock market holiday. Likewise, markets usually close the following Monday if the holiday falls on a Sunday.
Regular business hours for the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq are Monday through Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET. The markets are closed on weekends.
