The stock market also closed early the day of the attempted assassination of President Reagan and, further back in history, was closed for seven days following the assassination of President Lincoln. Does the stock market close if there is too much volatility?
Yes, under Rule 80B of the New York Stock Exchange, the stock market closes if the Dow Jones Industrial Average falls 20% in a single trading day. There are also trading halts if the Dow Jones Industrial Average falls 7% and 13% in a single trading day. Why does the stock market observe ‘Washington’s Birthday’ rather than ‘President’s Day?’
According to the New York Stock Exchange website, ‘Washington’s Birthday was first declared a federal holiday by an 1879 act of Congress. The Monday Holiday Law, enacted in 1968, shifted the date of the commemoration of Washington’s Birthday from February 22 to the third Monday in February, but neither that law nor any subsequent law changed the name of the holiday from Washington’s Birthday to President’s Day. Although the third Monday in February has become popularly known as President’s Day, the NYSE’s designation of Washington’s Birthday as an Exchange holiday (Rule 51) follows the form of the federal holiday outlined above (section 6103(a) of title 5 of the United States Code).’
