NYSE Atypical / Unplanned Closures

Discussion in 'Data Sets and Feeds' started by Statistical Trader, Dec 6, 2021.

  1. I've been doing a little historical research and have come across four dates when the NYSE appears to have been closed and I can't figure out why:

    2007-01-02 (not New Year's)

    Does anyone know why? These are not known market holidays.

    Last 3 were funerals of former US presidents (I just typed in dates in google...)

  3. That's funny.... I also tried typing the dates in google but did NOT get funerals of US presidents in the top 10 hits. Perhaps it's because I'm located in Canada and search results are modified to try to provide the information that is most relevant?? (Doesn't matter; off topic.)

    The 2007 and 2018 dates are memorial closings for the former presidents' Ford and George H.W. Bush.
