We’ve had a few calls and questions during the Mentorship training about the CME / ES trading hours for tomorrow’s Good Friday holiday. Simply put, the CME equities like the E-mini S&P 500 will be closed tomorrow as of 9:15 a.m. EDT (UTC-4, New York Time) onward. The next time they open is Sunday evening at 6:00 p.m. EDT. The last time to trade the E-mini is through the evening tonight, although activity may be slower than normal because of the Friday holiday.
In other words…
Thursday, April 2, 2015
