    "2007 NYSE Holidays

    New Year's Day January 1
    National Day of Mourning * January 2*
    Martin Luther King, Jr. Day January 15
    Washington's Birthday** February 19** (observed)
    Good Friday April 6
    Memorial Day May 28
    Independence Day July 4
    Labor Day September 3
    Thanksgiving Day November 22
    Christmas December 25

    * It was announced on December 29, 2006, that the New York Stock Exchange and NYSE Arca would be closed on Tuesday, Jan. 2, 2007 in observance of the national day of mourning for President Gerald R. Ford.
    ** Washington's Birthday was first declared a federal holiday by an 1879 act of Congress. The Monday Holiday Law, enacted in 1968, shifted the date of the commemoration of Washington's Birthday from February 22 to the third Monday in February, but neither that law nor any subsequent law changed the name of the holiday from Washington's Birthday to President's Day.
    Although the third Monday in February has become popularly known as President's Day, the NYSE's designation of Washington's Birthday as an Exchange holiday (Rule 51) follows the form of the federal holiday outlined above (section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code)."

    For feck sake, at least do a little bit of work on your own...:confused:
  10. Complain not! Days like this are a glorious opportunity to code and test futures trading algorithms in real time. No staying up late at night waiting for the tick that never comes.
