## Description

example

Closures = nyseclosures returns a vector of dates for all known or anticipated closures from January 1, 1885 to December 31, 2070.

Since the New York Stock Exchange was open on Saturdays before September 29, 1952, exact closures from 1885 to 1952 are based on a 6-day workweek. nyseclosures contains all holiday and special non-trading days for the New York Stock Exchange from 1885 through 2070 based on a six-day work week (always closed on Sundays).

[Closures,SatTransition] = nyseclosures(StartDate,EndDate,WorkWeekFormat), using optional input arguments, returns a vector of dates corresponding to market closures between StartDate and EndDate, inclusive.

Find the NYSE closures for 1899 using a datetime array:

[Closures,SatTransition] = nyseclosures(datetime(1899,1,1),datetime(1899,6,30))
Closures = 7x1 datetime
02-Jan-1899
11-Feb-1899
13-Feb-1899
22-Feb-1899
31-Mar-1899
29-May-1899

SatTransition = datetime
29-Sep-1952

Find the NYSE closure dates using the 'Archaic' value for WorkWeekFormat:

nyseclosures(datetime(1952,9,1),datetime(1952,10,31),'a')
ans = 10x1 datetime
01-Sep-1952
06-Sep-1952
13-Sep-1952
20-Sep-1952
27-Sep-1952
04-Oct-1952
11-Oct-1952
13-Oct-1952

The exchange was closed on Saturdays for much of 1952 before the official transition to a 5-day workweek.

## Input Arguments

collapse all

Start date, specified as a scalar or a vector using a datetime array, string array, or date character vectors.

To support existing code, nyseclosures also accepts serial date numbers as inputs, but they are not recommended.

Data Types: char | string | datetime

End date, specified as a scalar or a vector using a datetime array, string array, or date character vectors.

To support existing code, nyseclosures also accepts serial date numbers as inputs, but they are not recommended.

Data Types: char | string | datetime

Method to handle the workweek, specified using a date character vector with values 'Modern', 'Implicit', or 'Archaic'. This function accepts the first letter for each method as input and is not case-sensitive. Acceptable values are:

• 'Modern' — 5-day workweek with all Saturday trading days removed.

• 'Implicit' — 6-day workweek until 1952 and 5-day week afterward (no need to exclude Saturdays).

• 'Archaic' — 6-day workweek throughout and Saturdays treated as closures after 1952.

Data Types: char

## Output Arguments

collapse all

Market closures between the StartDate and EndDate, inclusive, returned as a vector of dates.

If StartDate or EndDate are all either strings or date character vectors, both Closures and SatTransition are returned as serial date numbers. Use the function datestr to convert serial date numbers to formatted date character vectors. If either StartDate or EndDate are datetime arrays, both Closures and SatTransition are returned as datetime arrays.

If both StartDate and EndDate are not specified or are empty, Closures contains all known or anticipated closures from January 1, 1885 to December 31, 2070 based on a WorkWeekFormat of 'implicit'.

Date of transition for the New York Stock Exchange from a 6-day workweek to a 5-day workweek, returned as the date September 29, 1952 (serial date number 713226).

If StartDate or EndDate are all either strings or date character vectors, both Closures and SatTransition are returned as serial date numbers. Use the function datestr to convert serial date numbers to formatted date character vectors. If either StartDate or EndDate are datetime arrays, both Closures and SatTransition are returned as datetime arrays.

### holidays

The holidays function is based on a modern 5-day workweek.

This function contains all holidays and special nontrading days for the New York Stock Exchange from January 1, 1885 to December 31, 2070.

Since the New York Stock Exchange was open on Saturdays before September 29, 1952, exact closures from 1885 to 2070 should include Saturday trading days. To capture these dates, use nyseclosures. The results from holidays and nyseclosures are identical if the WorkWeekFormat in nyseclosures is 'Modern'.
