Trading Holidays 2020-2021As a trader, it’s important to pay attention to trading holidays. You probably want to avoid volatile or slow conditions that can occur on or around holidays.

The following information focuses on CME Group equity products such as the E-mini S&P. If you would like to know the hours associated with other exchanges (NYBOT/ICE, NYMEX, EUREX, etc.) or markets, we encourage you to investigate on the appropriate websites.

Only non-standard halts, closures, etc. are listed. For more information, see the official CME Group holiday trading information here:
