Stock Market Holidays 2014

Andrew Klips |

There have been a lot of people asking the question:  Are the markets open on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day?  If you’re talking about floor trading, the answer is “no.”  Some electronic markets will be open in limited fashion for futures trading, such as CME Group Inc.’s (CME) trading of stock index futures (Sunday 6 PM ET – 11:30 AM Monday, then closed until 6 PM ET Monday).

Regarding all of 2014, here the schedule for the New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq Exchange:

January 1 – CLOSED (New Years Day)



January 20 – CLOSED (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day)

February 17 – CLOSED (Washington’s Birthday/Presidents’ Day)

April 18 – CLOSED (Good Friday)

May 26 – CLOSED (Memorial Day)

July 3 – open until 1 PM ET

July 4 – CLOSED (Independence Day)

September 1 – CLOSED (Labor Day)

November 27 – CLOSED (Thanksgiving Day)

November 28 – open until 1 PM ET

December 24 – open until 1 PM ET (Christmas Eve Day)

December 25 – CLOSED (Christmas Day)

That’s it.  If it’s not listed above, then the Dow and Naz are open.  When certain days roll around, most of us need to check the calendar because we generally would think that those exchanges would be closed on days such as Veteran’s Day, but they’re not.
