Is it closed on federal holiday?

There will be no trading in the bond markets on Thursday when the country celebrates Veterans Day, with its respect for those who served in the US military.

However, the stock market, with trading on the Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq, will remain open from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET.

MarketWatch notes that private banks It may choose to close, stay open or shorten business hours, while the Federal Reserve and all of its offices and branches are closed on all federal holidays such as Veterans Day.

No mail will be delivered on Thursday.

MarketWatch also reported that stock and bond markets alike celebrated Veterans Day earlier, beginning in 1938, when Veterans Day was declared a legal holiday. The stock market used to celebrate Veterans Day with a short two-minute close from 1954 to 2006, but that ended in 2007.
