Is there an easy way to check when an instrument is open/closed?

I'm wondering if there is a simple website where I can type in the name of an instrument and it will show me a countdown until it's open/closed, if it's open outcry or after hours trading, etc.

This was especially confusing during the holiday season. I know most people don't trade during this time anyways, but I do and it would be nice to have an instant and clear idea of when the markets are working.

This is what I'm looking for in terms of format, but right now futures (CL, ES, GC, YM, NQ) are trading electronically and it isn't reflected there. If I'm not mistaken this website only shows a countdown for open outcry? I want to see if a market is open, after hours, or not trading at all, and a countdown until it changes from open/after hours/closed.

Given each and every instrument has open and closed hours that will only vary due to holidays and scheduled early shutdowns, I would think a combination of having the formal operating hours as listed/summarized by a site like this - AMP - Trading Hours - along with a quick check of the exchange's planned holidays and hour changes, would be a good starting point, as is the case with the CME's page here: http://www.cmegroup.com/tools-information/holiday-calendar/

That's what I was looking at before I made this thread. If you go to the CME Group's page and look at the holiday information it doesn't tell you much. If you click on the PDF on the side it gives you this:


Quoting 
Wednesday, Dec 31
1615 CT / 1715 ET / 2215 UTC – Regular close
Thursday, Jan 1
New Years Observed – Globex closed
1700 CT / 1800 ET / 2300 UTC – Regular open for trade date Friday, Jan 2
Friday, Jan 2
1615 CT / 1715 ET / 2215 UTC – Regular close

What I gathered from that website is that the markets would be closed until January 2nd.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that the markets were closed from December 31st 4:15 PM until January 4:15 PM.

I figured it would just be easier if there was some sort of countdown or easy to read website, which is why I made this thread.

LOL then the last two trades I took on ES must be in my dreams.

CME ES opened today at 17:00 Central.

Ah I was off by 45 minutes I think?

It was closed from Dec 31 4:15 PM until Jan 1 5:00 PM (Central). So it opened about 5 hours ago from the time of this post.

I was confused by the website because according to what is posted, the markets should still be closed. I must be interpreting it wrong?

Why are you using a third party? Visit the CME site directly and review the holiday schedule.

Sent from my phone

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.
