Is the Stock Market Closed on Presidents' Day?

Kyle Woodley, Senior Investing Editor, Kiplinger.com
·2 min read

Take the day off, investors. The stock market and the bond market will both be closed on Feb. 17, 2020, to observe Presidents' Day. They will reopen on Tuesday following the three-day holiday weekend that commemorates the birth of America's first president. (Note that the federal holiday falls on the third Monday in February, while George Washington's actual birthday is Feb. 22.)

Presidents' Day is also a federal bank holiday.

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.
