Keeping a track on trading holidays is very important for traders for various reasons especially when it comes to derivatives and leveraged positions. It helps you understand when holidays are so that you can trade accordingly. For instance, let’s assume that today is a Friday of the third week of expiry and there is a major market event (Example: US Federal Reserve meeting) on Monday which can influence the price of stocks greatly. Imagine if you didn’t know that the stock markets are closed in India on Monday because of a festival. It could land you in unnecessary trouble if you are caught on the wrong side of the market. If you had known that there was a holiday, you might not have initiated overnight trades in the first place. Therefore, it is important to track stock market holidays for traders.
