So on Monday, May 28, every U.S.-based venue for trading securities will be closed.
They’ll also be closed on the two days before the holiday because they fall on a Saturday and Sunday, when the markets are closed.
However, U.S.-based capital markets will be open as usual on the preceding Friday, May 26 along with the day after Memorial Day, Tuesday, May 30. On both of these days, these venues will be open their regular hours.
Is the Stock Market Open Memorial Day?
This schedule includes the New York Stock Exchange, NASDAQ, U.S. bond markets, and the Chicago Mercantile Exchange.
However, even on the days that U.S. capital markets are closed, you’ll still be able to place trades through brokerages’ websites and mobile apps. However, the transactions won’t begin to process until the next business day.
Most likely you won’t feel motivated to place a trade on the holiday and thus won’t find the closures of the capital markets any inconvenience.
