Large parts of Europe are closed this Monday. It’s time to celebrate the “Monday of the Holy Spirit” also known as “the second day of Pentecost”. During this sunny day the shops are usually closed, and it may be difficult to buy a set of fresh barbecue meat.

However, the financial markets are open. Basically, it appears to be a fundamental right to be able to buy your straddles. With every normal person enjoying the beach or lining up for the dixi toilets at music festivals near the border – traders are facing another boring day at the office. Bummer.

The Germans of the Eurex are open as well. Hardly a relief.
