Holiday Schedule

On behalf of financial markets participants, SIFMA recommends a holiday schedule for financial markets in the U.S., U.K. and Japan.

About the Holiday Schedule

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.

Juneteenth National Independence Day Recommendations
Juneteenth National Independence Day is now a federal holiday.

Fixed Income Markets
SIFMA has revised its previous recommendations for 2022 full market closes for the trading of U.S. dollar-denominated fixed income securities in the U.S. SIFMA is now recommending a full market close on Monday, June 20, 2022 in observance of Juneteenth National Independence Day. 

Going forward, Juneteenth National Independence Day will be incorporated into our holiday schedule.
