All exchanges in the United States (including electronic exchanges) close on the United States Thanksgiving Day Holiday which is observed on the fourth Thursday of November.

Electronic futures exchanges usually reopen on Thanksgiving Day evening and other markets and pit traded futures will reopen on the following day, Friday. However, trading during the Friday session is often extremely low volume as many market participants take the Friday as a vacation day.
