Holiday Schedule

On behalf of financial markets participants, SIFMA recommends a holiday schedule for financial markets in the U.S., U.K. and Japan. View SIFMA’s policy (pdf) on unscheduled changes in trading hours.

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. Also See, Press Release: SIFMA Changes Early Close Recommendation Policy - April 3, 2009
