facebook twitter linkedin

Independence Day in the United States falls on Sunday this year. What this means for traders is that the U.S. stock market will be closed on Monday, July 5, in observation of the holiday. The markets will reopen for a four-day trading week on Tuesday morning at 9:30 a.m. ET. Happy 4th of July!

Today's trading session will feature May's nonfarm payrolls, the unemployment rate, average hourly earnings, trade deficit, and factory orders. 

There are no companies slated to release earnings today, July 2, ahead of the Independence Day holiday weekend.

Looking ahead to next week, there are no notable earnings reports coming up during the first full week of July. Economic data is fairly muted as well, after Monday's Independence Day holiday. Nonetheless, investors will be keeping an eye on updates from the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) in the middle of the week, as well as a fresh jobless claims data. All economic dates listed here are tentative and subject to change.
