If you are one the many wondering how the weekend affects stock markets around the world, here is an answer for you.
Stock markets are open Monday to Friday (9:30am to 4pm New York time).
If no major news is reported during the weekend, the regular session will resume on Monday and price will continue its trend direction from the Friday when the market closed.
If a major news is reported (either good or bad) during the weekend, it will be reflected in price action on Monday, when the market opens.
When looking at trading charts you might see a gap down if the news was negative, or a gap up if the news was positive. Price could also reverse trend direction.
It is also important to pay attention to what the other international markets are doing. For example, on Sunday evening when the New York Stock Exchange is closed, the Asian markets are in full trading mode and the European markets are about to begin their trading activity.
