The year of 2010 had three trading holidays for Euronext’s derivative markets. A long Easter weekend last week and a long forgotten and cold New Years Day. All traders and brokers can keep in mind there will be no public holidays for the remainder of 2010. All those comfortable days like Labour day and Christmas will occur in the weekend, and all other public holidays like Queensday and Pentecost monday are holiday for all but the financial markets.
There is some little good news. Next year will be better, and in the end of 2010 you will be given two free afternoons:
24 december 2010 – markets closed at 13:00
31 december 2010 – markets closed at 13:00
