NSE, BSE, and MCX Trading Holiday List of 2024

NSE, BSE, and MCX Holiday List 2023

National Stock Exchange, Bombay Stock Exchange, and Multi Commodity Exchange are the three exchanges that are used by most Indian traders and investors for equity as well as commodity shares. Every year these three exchanges publish their holiday list. Hence, this year the NSE, BSE, and MCX Trading Holiday list of 2024 has also been published. Many traders wait keenly for this list to know which dates come on Sunday and which dates have come under weekdays.

Hence, we all know, India is the home to people of all cultures and beliefs. It’s been described as a “country of celebrations.” Across the country, enthusiastic celebrations such as Holi, Navratri, and events such as republic day, Gandhi Jayanti, Children’s Day, etc take place almost every day. The culturally diverse country celebrates the majority of religious festivals with equal zeal. The Indian equity market is closed on specific days throughout the year to show respect for these special or religious occasions.

FAQ about NSE, BSE, and MCX Trading Holiday List

Why do NSE, BSE, and MCX provide holidays?

India is the small version of the world. That is why there is a celebration every other day. But closing the share bazaar every couple of days can not be possible. Hence the stock market of India decided to publish a list of holidays every year so that people could know on which days the market will remain closed. So that traders could map up their figures and people could enjoy their festival as well. That is why NSE, BSE, and MCX provide holidays.

If any holiday falls on Sunday does the market remain closed on Monday?

As the market stays closed on Saturdays and Sundays if any holiday falls under that then the holiday does not continue on Mondays. That means you can start trading on Monday normally like the way you do after any Sunday.

During Navratri does the market stay closed for 3 to 4 days?

No, the market remains closed for just one day that is Dussehra. Though the celebration started and continues for the next nine days the market stays closed for only one day which is the last day.

Does MCX stay close in both sessions?

No, there is very few occasion when the MCX market remain closed for both the morning session and evening session. Good Friday and Republic Day are those occasions when the market stays closed for both sessions.

That means either of the morning session is open for trading and the evening session is off for that day. The exchange itself publishes such a holiday list. In the following, I have presented the MCX Holidays and which session is open for that day’s trading is also maintained there.
