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.
