All recommended market closes are recommendations only; each SIFMA member firm will decide for itself whether its fixed-income departments remain open for trading. All SIFMA recommendations are subject to change due to market conditions.

All SIFMA holiday recommendations apply to the trading of U.S. 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. Previously scheduled SIFMA early close recommendations do not affect the closing time for settlements.
