Happy Christmas 2014

 The trading days that typically see the lowest volume are clustered around the end of the year, with Christmas Eve and the day before Thanksgiving seeing the least activity, according to data from the past seven years gathered by analysts with Nasdaq OMX Group.
Christmas Eve typically sees the lowest trading volumes of the year as investors check out early or take the day off.
In 2013, the five days with the lowest trading volume were: Christmas Eve, with 2.75 billion shares changing hands; the day after Thanksgiving, with 2.97 billion; July 3, with 3.59 billion; Dec. 26, with 3.81 billion; and Dec. 27, with 4.03 billion.
The U.S. stock market is closed on Thursday, Christmas Day. It’s open until 1 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, Christmas Eve. The market is open for its regular hours on New Year’s Eve.
