Investors indeed do have the day off on April 10, 2020, in recognition of Good Friday ahead of the Easter Sunday holiday, which falls on April 12. Friday is a stock market holiday, but bond traders get two days off. That's because the bond market closes on Thursday, April 9, for Maundy Thursday, another holy day tied to Easter.

Stock and bond trading resume at their normal hours on Monday, the day after Easter.

The following is a schedule of all stock market and bond market holidays for 2020. Note that regular trading hours for the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Nasdaq Stock Market are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern on weekdays. The stock markets close at 1 p.m. on early-closure days; bond markets close early at 2 p.m.

Market Holiday Observations

When a holiday falls on a weekend, market closures are dictated by two rules:

  • If the holiday falls on a Saturday, the market will close on the preceding Friday.

  • If the holiday falls on a Sunday, the market will close on the subsequent Monday.
