NOW PLAYINGIs Wall Street Closed On New Year's Day? These Are The 2024 Stock Market Holidays

After knocking out a powerful first-half-year advance, the Nasdaq continues notching record-high weekly closes. The S&P 500 is trading over and under the 5,500 level for the first time. Meanwhile, the Dow is hugging 10-week support in a shallow consolidation. As we head for a new earnings season, the next holiday on the NYSE and Nasdaq calendars is Independence Day — on Thursday, July 4.

The stock and bond markets closed early for the holiday on July 3 and remain closed on July 4. Dow Jones futures will trade normally.

Here is a look at the July Fourth market closures, and on the other upcoming stock market holidays.

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.
