Investors are about to embark on a three-day (or three-and-a-half-day) holiday weekend.
The stock market is closed on Friday, April 15, 2022 – Good Friday, as well as the start of Passover this year – ahead of the Easter Sunday holiday, which falls on April 17.
As a result, no major earnings are scheduled for Friday.
However, bond traders will enjoy not just a full Friday off, but also a partial trading day Thursday. The bond markets will shut down early, at 2 p.m., for Maundy Thursday.
Stock and bond trading resume at their normal hours on Monday, the day after Easter.
The following is a schedule of all stock market and bond market holidays for 2022. Note that regular trading hours for the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and Nasdaq Stock Market are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Eastern on weekdays. The stock markets close at 1 p.m. on early-closure days; bond markets close early at 2 p.m.

Market Holiday Observations
When it comes to the stock and bond markets alike, if a holiday falls on a weekend, market closures are dictated by two rules:
- If the holiday falls on a Saturday, the market will close on the preceding Friday.
- If the holiday falls on a Sunday, the market will close on the subsequent Monday.
Stock and Bond Market Hours
The “core trading” stock market hours for the NYSE and Nasdaq are 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. on weekdays. However, both exchanges offer premarket trading hours between 4 and 9:30 a.m., as well as late trading hours between 4 and 8 p.m.
Bond markets typically trade between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
The stock markets close at 1 p.m. on early-closure days; bond markets close early at 2 p.m.
