Is the Stock Market Open on Columbus Day 2020?

·2 mins read

Wall Street will be at work on Columbus Day, even if you aren't.

The stock market will indeed be open on Columbus Day (which is increasingly being known as Indigenous Peoples' Day). While it's technically a federal holiday in 2020, stock trading will take place at its normal hours on Oct. 12.

However, the bond market will be closed on Columbus Day. Bond trading resumes, as usual, on Tuesday, Oct. 13, which is also when the corporate earnings calendar will start hopping with third-quarter reports.

The following is a schedule of all stock market and bond market holidays for 2020.

Stock Market Holiday Observations

When it comes to the stock and bond markets alike, if 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.

Stock and Bond Market Hours

The "core trading" stock market hours for the NYSE and Nasdaq are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. However, both exchanges offer premarket trading hours between 4 and 9:30 a.m., as well as late trading hours between 4 and 8 p.m.

Bond markets typically trade between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The stock markets close at 1 p.m. on early-closure days; bond markets close early at 2 p.m.
