Merry Christmas, Holiday Trading Schedule + Trading Levels 12.23.2022
Posted By:- Ilan Levy-Mayer Vice President, Cannon Trading Futures Blog
Heads up traders. The holidays are near at hand and with them, holiday trading hours and holiday trading conditions. This year, Christmas falls on a Sunday and Monday the 26th is the designated holiday. So, when the markets close Friday afternoon – at their regular times – the markets will remain closed Sunday night all the way through to their Monday afternoon/evening openings. Ordinarily, trade volume across all asset classes declines into a holiday and this may be augmented due to the extended closures of the markets. It’s advised to keep an eye on your open positions and open orders coming into the Monday afternoon opening.
We wish you all a safe and joyous holiday!!
