The NASDAQ stock exchange is open for trading from Monday through Friday, with the exception of certain holidays. The List of Holidays in Nasdaq is very short. The NASDAQ’s regular trading hours are from 9:30 AM to 4:00 PM Eastern Standard Time (EST).

However, it’s important to note that the NASDAQ also has extended hours trading, which takes place before and after the regular trading hours. The pre-market session is from 4:00 AM to 9:30 AM EST, and the after-hours session is from 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM EST. During extended hours trading, only certain securities are eligible for trading, and the volume of trading is generally lower than during regular market hours.

It’s also worth noting that the NASDAQ is a global marketplace, with participants from around the world. As a result, it’s important to consider the time difference when trading on the NASDAQ from other parts of the world. For example, if you are trading from London, the NASDAQ’s regular trading hours will be from 2:30 PM to 9:00 PM Greenwich Mean Time (GMT).
