Is The Stock Market Open On Thanksgiving 2022?

Thanksgiving is an annual national holiday in the United States and Canada that commemorates the year's blessings. Colonists in New England and Canada held “thanksgivings" on a regular basis, days of prayer for blessings such as safe travel, military victories, and abundant harvests. Americans base their holiday on a harvest feast shared by the Wampanoag people and English colonists known as Pilgrims in 1621. Canadians can trace their first thanksgiving celebration back to 1578 when an expedition led by Martin Frobisher expressed gratitude for safe passage. On Thanksgiving, family and friends gather in both Canada and the United States for a meal and other festivities. Traditional American fare frequently includes turkey, cranberries, and pumpkin pie. Parades and football games have also long been associated with Thanksgiving.

Brokerage accounts will be idle on Thursday, November 24, because the stock market will be closed for Thanksgiving.

However, investors will not have a full four-day weekend. On Black Friday, the stock market is open – at least for a short time.

For the Thanksgiving holiday in 2022, the stock market will be closed all day. Meanwhile, on Black Friday, November 25, the stock market will open at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time, with trading on both the Nasdaq Stock Market and the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) ending early at 1:00 p.m only. Keep in mind that regular stock market trading hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Eastern time.

The bond market, which will be closed all day on Thanksgiving and open for a brief session on Black Friday, will follow a similar pattern.

We have included a complete list of all stock market and bond market holidays for 2022 below. Please keep in mind that the list of stock market holidays has grown by one day in 2022. Because Congress voted in 2021 to make Juneteenth, the 19th of June commemorating the abolition of slavery, the 12th federal holiday. When President Joe Biden signed the bill last year, it became the first new federal holiday since Martin Luther King Jr. Day, which was established by then-President Ronald Reagan in 1983.
