There will be no trading in stocks or treasury bills because the equity and bond markets will be closed.
Futures markets for equities, metals and energy will also be closed.
Futures contracts will resume trading Monday at 6 p.m. ET.
US stocks closed lower Friday, capping the worst year for equities since 2008 as investors grapple with sky-high inflation and a recession that could worsen in 2023.
