Holiday 2021

MCX holidays are the days when all trading activities in the significant multi-commodity exchange of India remains closed. These days are religious festivals or national holidays. At the beginning of a year, MCX publishes a complete MCX holiday list to update traders. Likewise, in 2021 also, MCX has published a list of MCX trading holidays. Keeping the list handy would help you to plan trades accordingly.

However, on days when MCX remains closed during the day, it still opens for the evening trading session, matching the international commodity market. During the evening sessions, traders can trade from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
