The Tell: Which markets are closed for U.S. Independence Day

U.S. markets will be shuttered July 4 in observance of Independence Day, while the rest of the world treats the U.S. exit from the Brits just like any other Monday.

The Fourth of July is typically associated with fireworks to commemorate the break from the U.K., but fireworks came early for global markets last Friday after a so-called Brexit, or British exit from the EU, emerged the winning side in the EU referendum, roiling global markets.

So far, investors are calmer, at least for the moment. But many traders could use a longer respite. Here’s the run down of what’s closed in the coming days:

  • The Securities Industries and Financial Markets Associations has recommended that the bond markets close early Friday at 2 p.m. and traders get the day off Monday.
  • New York Stock Exchange trading will observe regular trading Friday but will be closed Monday.
  • Globex electronic trading, where oil and metals are traded, will observe normal hours on July 1, while the electronic trading platform will see an early 1 p.m. Eastern close Monday.
  • Chicago and New York Mercantile floor trading will be opened for business Friday, and Chicago-traded commodities will be closed Monday.
  • European and Asian markets will be open on Friday and Monday
  • Currency markets will be open for business
