27+ year full-time trader here.
Here is how you handle U.S. Memorial Day if you need your fix.
You have official bank holiday in U.S., Germany, Switzerland, & France.
IF you trade currencies you can do Aussie/Japan & GBP crosses early (before 8am est--ideally beginning early on Sunday evening U.S. time).
If you are trading the British Pound futures or GBP/USD you might be able to squeeze out a trade early from 4am est up to 6am est.
If you are trading Oil; trade Brent Crude from 1am est up to maybe 5:30am est.
Forget about any world indices; unless you are trading Aussie SPI or Nikkei; but I prefer the HSI; again--up to 3am est on Monday overnight.
peace & blessings!
Don't forget the ES. 12 point move so far since open on Sunday.
