TRADING HOURS OF THE WORLD’S MAJOR STOCK EXCHANGES
Closing times for stock market exchanges vary, but they generally close in the evening – except on holidays. A stock market exchange is a marketplace where stocks are traded throughout the day; it functions as an entity that ensures orderly trading and efficient dissemination of price quotes for stocks on the exchange. Some of the main stock market exchanges are the Shanghai Stock Exchange, Swiss Exchange, London Stock Exchange, New York Stock Exchange, and Nasdaq. Trading is generally conducted from Monday to Friday of each week.
