SIFMA Recommends Full Market Close on
November 12 for Trading of US Dollar-Denominated Fixed-Income Securities in the
UK in Observance of the US Veterans Day Holiday
New York, N.Y., November 5, 2012 — SIFMA has confirmed its previous recommendations for a
full market close on Monday, November 12 for the trading of US
dollar-denominated fixed-income securities in the United Kingdom in observance
of the US Veterans Day Holiday.
These recommendations apply
to trading of US dollar-denominated government securities, mortgage- and
asset-backed securities, over-the-counter investment-grade and high-yield
corporate bonds, municipal bonds and secondary money market trading in bankers’
acceptances, commercial paper and Yankee and Euro certificates of deposit.
SIFMA’s recommended early and
full market closes are recommendations only; each member firm should decide for
itself whether its fixed-income departments remain open for trading. All SIFMA recommendations are subject to
change due to market conditions.
