Holidays 2022

MCX, the significant multi-commodity exchange in India, observes trading holidays on national holidays or religious festivals. For the convenience of traders and other stakeholders, MCX publishes an updated list of MCX holidays at the beginning of each year. Likewise, in 2022, MCX has published the MCX holiday list 2022. Keeping the list handy would help you to plan trades accordingly.

However, 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.
