On the occasion of Guru Nanak Jayanti, the BSE (Bombay Stock Exchange) and NSE (National Stock Exchange) will be closed on Friday. According to the list of stock market holidays for 2021, trading in currency, debt, and equity categories will be suspended today.
While the commodity section will be closed from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., it will reopen at 5 p.m. for the evening session.
On Thursday, Indian equity indexes fell for the third day in a row, owing to negative global cues. The main indices were dragged lower by selling pressure across sectors, led by IT, financial, and auto stocks. The NSE Nifty ended the day 133 points lower at 17,764, while the BSE Sensex ended the day 372 points worse at 59,636.
The day is the market’s last trading holiday for the current calendar year. On Monday, November 22nd, the market will reopen for business.
This is the third stock market holiday in November 2021, according to the calendar of stock market holidays for 2021. Prior to Guru Nanak Jayanti, Indian markets were closed for Diwali Laxmi Pujan and Diwali Balipratipada on November 4th and 5th, 2021. As a result, November 2021 will be the last month in which the stock market is closed for three days following April 2021.
In 2021, Guru Nanak Jayanti will be the last stock market holiday. Following that, there would be no stock market holidays this year, according to the BSE website’s stock market holidays list.
