Certain American financial markets will be open next Monday, October 12, on the occasion of the federal holiday Columbus Day.

While bond traders will have the day off, the stock markets will remain open for business. The New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ will both be open during regular hours.

Columbus Day and Veterans Day are the two federal holidays on which stocks continue to trade.

The break will come at a time when markets became increasingly volatile ahead of the November 3 presidential elections. That hasn’t stopped U.S. stock indexes from racking up gains as election results may come sooner than expected, easing uncertainty will keep markets leading through November.
