    Considering Thursday is Thanksgiving in the United States I would imagine Futures and Stock Markets are closed?

    If they are closed why are there Economic reports expected out on Thursday?

  2. Thanksgiving is the following Thursday

    thanks bud, in any case I was wondering if most people will be taking a long weekend(Thursday and Friday Off) making trading dead on Friday.

    Any Thoughts?
  4. I myself have not worked a Friday after Thanksgiving in nearly 20 years. Stocks may be thin,
  5. Tums


  6. The "family" guys will take a 5-day weekend. The "single" guys will be trading. :cool:
  7. The friday after Thansgiving has been dead since 1998 (Books-A-Million anyone---BAMM?)

  8. Do they have a bargain-bin with 1-dollar, trading-related titles? :)
  9. LOL. I didn't even realize they were still around.

    Were you trading back then (1998)?

    BAMM was up something like 1000% the day after Thanksgiving. Probably sold like 10 books, but had 10,000 "page views".
