Hey, is it just me or are the markets closed today. Every web site I check concerning the stock markets for friday the 10th are not up to date. Every site I have checked is showing yesterdays gains and none for today. I just wondering if it is me or if something else is going on?

The US markets are closed in observance of Good Friday.

Ahh, thanks! Could not figure out for the life of me why they wouldn't be open. Thanks for solving that for me.

There is only one good day in the year allocated and it comes on Friday in April except when it's the 13th day. That's why it is called Good Friday. I think that Obama issued an executive order to have the market closed for the day to avoid possible bad news from NYSE. But the traders traditionally observe Good Friday the day before. That's why the Dow rallied heavily and closed up 246 points on Thursday.

~ Larger Overview ~


Every Quarter, the Gov't/the Market, has at least one official 'Day-Off'

in the 1st Quarter, we took off the MLK day, instead of Washingtons birthday.

in the 2nd Quarter we got Good Friday, instead of Arbor Day or Law Day,
in the 2nd Quarter we will also get Memorial Day

in the 3rd Quarter, expect Labor Day, but not Patriot Day or POW-MIA Day

in the 4th Quarter expect, Thanksgiving & Christmas Days, but we will forego Columbus Day & NationalBoss Day


all these shortened weeks are there to accomplish things like:

1. over-time pay available for the working schmucks like myself,
2. time for the elites to jet off to vaction homes or have some Yacht time,
3. long weekends for the representatives to fly to home districts and solict contributions, hire on pretty interns etc
