A challenging year is set for its wrap party, with only a short week of trading days left in 2022. Wall Street operated normally for most of Hanukkah, which this year ran from Dec. 18 to Dec. 26. After Monday’s Christmas break, the stock and bond markets will run normally through the week. Markets will be closed Monday Jan. 2, in observance of the New Year’s holiday.
Take a look at this list of stock market holidays in 2022 to find out whether the market will be open on days like Veterans Day, Christmas Eve and others.
What Are Stock Market Holidays?
A so-called market holiday is any nonweekend day when the New York Stock Exchange, Nasdaq, or bond markets close for the day. Usually, that holiday is something like Thanksgiving or Christmas.
On some holidays, or days close to them, the stock markets remain open, while the bond markets stay closed or close early. Sometimes, the markets close for national days of mourning, as the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq did to honor the late president George H.W. Bush in 2018.
If a given holiday happens to take place on Saturday, the Friday before it typically becomes a stock market holiday. Similarly, markets typically close on the following Monday if the holiday lands on a Sunday.
Regular hours for the New York Stock Exchange and the Nasdaq go from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET from Monday to Friday. The markets are closed over the weekends.
