For yet another year, investors will be able enjoy a long holiday weekend away from their brokerage accounts. That’s because the stock market is closed on Monday, July 5, in observation of Independence Day. (The Fourth of July falls on a Sunday this year.)

But bond traders get an even better deal. Not only are the bond markets closed completely on Monday, but they also shut down early Friday, July 2, calling it quits at 2 p.m.

Regular trading hours for both the stock market and the bond market resume on Tuesday, July 6.

The following is a schedule of all stock market and bond market holidays for 2021. Please note that regular trading hours for the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Nasdaq Stock Market are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern on weekdays. The stock markets close at 1 p.m. on early-closure days; bond markets close early at 2 p.m.
