NEW YORK, Dec 3 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump signed an order to close the federal government on Wednesday, Dec. 5, in a day of mourning for former U.S. President George H.W. Bush, who died on Friday at the age of 94.
Several financial exchanges have also announced that their markets will be closed on Wednesday. Below is a list of scheduled market closures for that day.
The New York Stock Exchange and Nasdaq will be closed.
The Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association recommended on Saturday that fixed-income cash markets close.
CME Group announced on Sunday that U.S.-based equity and interest rate futures and options products would be closed for trading.
