Though all investors should check on their portfolio’s performance, it’s especially important to do so if you’re an active, self-directed trader. Since the markets can be full of twists and turns, you’ll want to make sure your investment strategy is working in your favor.
If there’s a stock you’re thinking of adding to your portfolio, or if you’re looking to sell an asset at a set price during a certain date, you’ll need to familiarize yourself with the holidays and early closures of the major US stock exchanges so you won’t get caught off guard when those times come.
We’ve included a list of holidays that the stock market and bond market are closed, as well as a list of days each market has early closures.
What time does the stock market open?
The stock market’s regular trading hours are weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET. However, the market will close as early as 1 p.m. ET on the day before or after certain holidays.
Plus, you may be able to trade during pre-market hours (4 to 9:30 a.m. ET) depending on your brokerage or investment platform. The same goes for after-hours trading. This is available from 4 to 8 p.m. ET.
But the available hours may vary depending on your broker. For instance, SoFi Invest only offers pre-market trading from 9 to 9:30 a.m. ET, but it provides extended hours of trading from 4 to 8 p.m.

Can you still use your account while the stock market is closed?
Unless you’re using international stock exchanges or electric communication networks, you probably won’t be able to trade during the weekend or on holidays when the market is closed. However, you can still perform basic functions in your account.
You can check balances, monitor your portfolio’s performance, or initiate deposits or withdrawals. Keep in mind, though, that you won’t be able to place any orders until the market reopens. Plus, the rate at which fund deposits or withdrawals are complete depends on your brokerage’s hours.
Banks are open the same days as the stock and bond markets, with a few exceptions.
