SIFMA Recommends Full Market Close on November 12 for Trading of US Dollar-Denominated Fixed-Income Securities in the US in Observance of the 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 States in observance of the 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.
