Stock market holidays

When planning your trading activities on the stock market, you should always remember that the trading schedule for stocks directly depends on the trading hours of the exchange where particular stocks are traded. As a rule, global markets operate from Monday to Friday during the trading hours that can be found here.

However, there are exceptions in the form of market holidays, when markets close earlier or some assets may be completely unavailable for trading. For example, at Christmas or on Thanksgiving Day, it is not possible to perform any operations with assets that are traded on the NYSE and the NASDAQ. The Hong Kong Stock Exchange is closed in May for the celebration of the Birthday of the Buddha, while European exchanges rest on May Day. Also, most stock exchanges are closed over the New Year holidays.

The complete schedule of stock market holidays in 2023 can be found in the table below. RoboMarkets informs its clients of upcoming changes in trading schedules in advance to enable traders to adjust their trading plans accordingly.
