If the NYSE and NASDAQ also see fit to close on Tuesday, I am sure CME will follow suit again.

This is the first time since September 11, 2001 that the market has been closed for a non-holiday. Personally I don't agree with this decision to close the market.

Equity index futures closed again Tuesday. Damn.


Quoting 
October 29, 2012


To Our Valued Customers,

CME Group will reopen its U.S. equity index futures and options on futures markets today at 5:00 p.m. CT for overnight electronic trading. The equity index markets will close tomorrow morning October 30, at 8:15 a.m. CT for both the trading floor and CME Globex in coordination with the announced closure of the U.S. equity markets because of Hurricane Sandy.

CME Group's interest rate futures and options on futures including Treasury, Eurodollar and Fed Funds will reopen at 5:00 p.m. CT today and resume normal trading hours, including remaining open tomorrow, October 30. The re-opening for interest rate markets applies to both trading floor and CME Globex venues.

In addition, as a result of New York City's continued mandatory evacuation of Zone A, which includes CME Group's NYMEX World Headquarters and New York trading floor, the New York floor will be closed on Tuesday, October 30. All New York floor-traded products will be available on ClearPort as well as CME Globex during their regular market hours.

All other CME Group futures and options on futures markets will remain open.

We will continue to monitor the situation as well as continue our coordination with other exchanges and will keep you updated as information becomes available. For additional information about specific markets and settlement procedures, please visit Futures & Options Trading for Risk Management - CME Group.

CME Group
