Product Schedule Guidelines for Holidays
Below are the rules outlining the changes to product listing and/or settlement schedules for Nadex
products due to US and foreign public and exchange holidays. In instances of an underlying market
closing early, the Exchange will adjust its contracts accordingly to reflect this early close. In any week for
which there are three or more holidays in the same underlying market resulting in the closure of that
market and/or a holiday observed by Nadex, whether consecutive or not, no weekly contracts for
products based on that underlying market will be listed for that week. If there are any product specific
exceptions for a certain holiday not outlined below, Nadex will submit those exceptions to the CFTC
separately as needed.

1. For US holidays that fall on a Monday, Nadex will observe the following business hours:

  • Monday trade date (holiday): The Exchange will be closed for Monday’s trade date
    (from 6pm Sunday to 5pm ET Monday).
  • Tuesday trade date: The Exchange will observe regular business hours. Unless
    otherwise specified below, all contracts listed on this date will open and close at their
    regular times and weekly contracts listed on this date will have a settlement date of
    Friday of the current week. Exceptions are as follows:

    • All Daily and Weekly Nymex/Comex-based Commodity, FTSE 100, Germany 30,
      and U.S. Equity Index contracts will open at 3am ET and close at their regular
      times.
    • All Daily and Weekly Currency contracts will open at 6pm ET and close at their
      regular times. The Daily Currency 7:00pm ET close time Binary contract which
      would normally expire at 7:00pm ET on Tuesday’s trade date (Monday evening)
      will not be listed.
    • All Event contracts listed on this date will open at 3am ET and close at their
      regular times.

2. For US holidays that fall on a Friday, Nadex will observe the following business hours:

  • Monday trade date (preceding the holiday): The Exchange will observe regular business
    hours. All Weekly contracts listed on this date will have a settlement date of Thursday
    of the current week, or the last available trade day if Thursday is also a holiday for which
    the Exchange is closed, and will expire at their regular expiration times.
  • Thursday trade date: The Exchange will close at 4:15pm ET on Thursday’s trade date.
    Contracts listed for trading on Thursday’s trade date will expire pursuant to their regular
    Friday schedule. In the event the expiration date for the Nonfarm Payrolls Binary
    contracts would fall on a Friday that the Exchange is closed, those contracts will not be
    listed for the duration of that holiday week.
  • Friday trade date (holiday): The Exchange will be closed for Friday’s trade date.

3. For US Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, Nadex will observe the following business hours:

  • Monday trade date (preceding the holiday): The Exchange will observe regular business
    hours. All Weekly contracts listed on this date will have a settlement date of Friday of
    the current week, with the exception of any contracts not available for trading on
    Friday, which will have a settlement date of Wednesday of the current week.
  • Wednesday trade date (preceding the holiday): The Exchange will observe regular
    business hours. No Daily Currency Binary contracts which would expire on Thursday’s
    trade date will be listed on Wednesday.
  • Thursday trade date (holiday): The Exchange will be closed for Thursday’s trade date.
  • Friday trade date: The Exchange will open at 8am ET. Unless otherwise specified below,
    all contracts listed on this date will open and close at their regular times. Exceptions are
    as follows:

    • No Japan 225 contracts will be offered on this trade date.
    • All Nymex/Comex-based Commodity, FTSE 100, Germany 30, and U.S. Equity
      Index contracts will open at 8am ET or their regular open times, and will close
      according to the close time of the corresponding underlying market.
    • No Daily Currency Binary contracts will be available for trading on Friday, with
      the exception of the 3pm ET close time contract which will open at 8am ET and
      close at 3pm ET. Additionally, 2-hr Intraday binary contracts with a 4pm ET
      expiration time will not be listed on this day. All other Currency contracts will
