Many traders require constant attention to what's going on in the stock market. A few share market holidays, aside from weekends, provide them with a break as the stock exchanges are closed. These market holidays are government holidays (like Gandhi Jayanti) or cultural or religious (like Diwali).

Even if share markets are open on certain specific days due to holidays, it's crucial to bear in mind that outside events or causes might still have an influence on market sentiment. It is therefore advisable to be vigilant, even over the holidays, and to be mindful of your position and possible investments. During this time of year, distractions and other activities might cause you to lose out on chances; being alert can help you prevent this.
