New York Exchanges Are Closed Today

The New York exchanges, including:

The New York Stock Exchange®
The NASDAQ Stock Market®
The American Stock Exchange®
The New York Mercantile Exchange

are closed today in observance of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday.

Many workers here in the U.S. have the day off today to celebrate the birthday of the civil right leader Martin Luther King, Jr., who would have been 77 years old yesterday.

Do me a small favor: take a minute to think about why you have this day off. The way I see it, it's about the many levels of freedom that all Americans have the right to enjoy, and the right of all Americans--not some--to pursue happiness and prosperity in this land of limitless skies and infinite opportunities. God bless civil rights, and God bless America.

All New York exchanges will reopen tomorrow.
