Are Banks Open on Easter Monday?

Find out if banks are open the Monday after Easter.

Is the Stock Market Open on Easter Monday?

Unlike banks, U.S. stock markets don’t rely on the Federal Reserve Bank nor observe the same holidays. Days the stock markets are closed are referred to as trading holidays, and might be recognized by Nasdaq, the New York Stock Exchange and SIFMA.

Good news for traders: Stock markets are open on Easter Monday, unlike Good Friday when they’ll be closed.
