Market Direction and North American Stock Exchanges Holidays

stock-market-holidaysI think it is of value to investors to have a schedule of holidays when the North American exchanges are not trading. I know I like to have a quick reference as some holidays are not official holidays for the exchanges. To assist here are the holidays when stock exchanges in both the United States and Canada will not be open.
