    From CME Group website... Does this mean all futures reopen tomorrow night at 6pm eastern?

    Yeah, everything is back to normal at 6PM ET tomorrow evening. That's all that really matters. Everyone should just stay out from now until then if they cannot handle these weird ideas about "trading dates".

    And the Aussies must be freaking out! hehe!
