Kospi closed? (Nov12/'09)

Discussion in 'Trading' started by Sell 'em, Nov 11, 2009.

  1. The Korean exchange hasn't opened this morning, but the exchange doesn't list today as a holiday.

    Anyone know what is up?

    November options expire today ... what a terrible day for an outage if that's what this is ...
  2. r2d2


    Opening delayed by one hour due to nationwide college examination.
  3. Much thks ...
  4. Ehhh ... I didn't get the part about also staying open another hour. Is this info available on the Korean Stock Exchange website? Otherwise, how best for us non-Korean speakers to stay on top of schedule changes like this?

    I had a great day trading Kospi, but knowing the schedule would have removed a lot of stress.
