The stock market is closed today as a day of mourning for President H.W. Bush. On a related note, here are the links to where you can find the hours of the major exchanges as well as holiday schedules.
Stocks, ETFs, and Options
CBOE (Options Market)
Regular hours: 9:30 a.m. TO 4:00 p.m. ET
Check with your broker to see when or if they offer pre or post market trading.
“Unlike stocks and ETFs, mutual funds trade only once per day, after the markets close at 4 p.m. ET. If you enter a trade to buy or sell shares of a mutual fund, your trade will be executed at the next available net asset value, which is calculated after the market closes and typically posted by 6 p.m. ET.”
