HOWEVER, the rest of the futures markets will be closing normal times.

In celebration of America’s 248th birthday, our team decided to take a look at this holiday through the fascinating lens of numbers. As it Turns out, these figures paint a vivid picture of what makes the Fourth of July such an extraordinary celebration. With that in mind, we thought we would share what we found with you:

  • 150 million – The number of hot dogs consumed each 4th of July — enough to stretch from D.C. to L.A. more than five times. It’s also the number of American flags sold in the U.S. each year.
