Is the Market Trading Today?

According to the BSE’s list of holidays for 2024, the Indian stock market is closed today, Thursday, for Gudi Padwa. This means there will be no trading in the market today. The holiday list shows that there are two days off in April 2024 — today, the 11th, and the 17th.

After Eid, the next holiday is on April 17th for Ram Navami, which means the trading week will be shorter next week. After Ram Navami, there are no more holidays in April.

May’s Holidays

Originally, May had only one holiday on the 1st for Maharashtra Day. However, due to the Lok Sabha elections, another day off has been added on May 20th. So, there are two holidays in May 2024.

In June and July, the stock market will close for one day each month. In June, the market will be closed on the 17th for Bakri Eid, and in July, it will close on the 17th for Muharram.
