WASHINGTON, November 26, 2013 – As always, major U.S. holidays affect trading and settlement schedules in domestic stock and bond markets. With the Thanksgiving holiday weekend nearly upon us, here’s a synopsis of this holiday market schedule:

Today (November 26) and tomorrow (November 27):

Normal trading and settlement times observed.

Thursday, November 28: All U.S. markets—equity, option and fixed income—as well as pre-market and after-market trading will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving Day. Regular way settlements for the week adjusted accordingly.

Friday, November 29: Markets, as well as pre-market trading, will open in the morning at the usual times. However, equity, option, and fixed income markets all will close early, at 1:00 p.m. EST. For this reason, after-hours trading today only will open at 1:15 p.m. EST and close at 5 p.m. EST.

Canadian Markets: Canadian markets will be open for normal trading on November 28 and 29. However, certain aftermarket trades in Canadian stocks placed on U.S. exchanges after normal U.S. trading hours on November 27 (Wednesday) and 29 (Friday) will route to Canadian exchanges on November 29 and December 2 (next Monday) respectively.

For specific details or questions, contact your broker. Trading on foreign markets will generally remain open during this U.S. holiday.
