Thanksgiving E-mini TradingIf you trade the E-mini S&P and similar CME markets, here is what you can expect for the U.S. Thanksgiving holiday this week:  Thu., Nov. 23 (Thanksgiving Day)

It’s a good time to reset and take a break from trading. It’s important to spend time with friends and family.

Fri., Nov. 24
Markets CLOSE EARLY at 1:15 p.m. EST (UTC-5, New York Time)

See the official CME Globex Trading Schedule for Thanksgiving and other holidays

The NYSE also closes early at 1:00 p.m. EST (UTC-5, New York Time) on Nov. 23 and Nov. 24. The Nasdaq is closed Nov. 23 and closes early at 1:00 p.m. (UTC-5, New York Time) on Nov. 24.

Why the early close on Friday, the day after Thanksgiving? Stock trading is usually at half the volume. Also, since 1992, the exchanges have closed early on Black Friday. Black Friday is considered the big kickoff to the holiday shopping season.

We hope you and your family have a happy and safe Thanksgiving!

  1. Holiday trading is sometimes hit or miss. Most traders don’t know the schedule, especially the half days. Thanks for posting the CME times for traders. I have the Tradescalper and love it! Any discounts for prior members, looking to get the Autopilot system?
