CL trading on sundays. According to the contract specs:

Crude Oil Options Contract Specs - CME Group

These are the trading hours:

Sunday - Friday 6:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (5:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. Chicago Time/CT) with a 60-minute break each day beginning at 5:00 p.m. (4:00 p.m. CT)

However, looking at Market Replay data it seems that marekt wasn't open on every Sunday. Take for example the last week. There was not trading between Friday (June 2'nd) and Monday (June 5'th).

Why was there no trading during Sunday on the fourth? Looking at older dates there are sundays where there is trading. How does one identify which Sundays that will be open for trading?

thanks.

Hi Zag

Here's OHLC data for Sunday the 4th June 2017 (the times are UK times for my data)

What led you to believe there was no trading that day?
