CSE to close at 12.30 p.m. tomorrow

The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) announced an additional half-holiday tomorrow (30). CSE Chief Regulatory Officer Renuke Wijayawardhane announced, in a circular to their member firms and trading members, that the market will close at 12.30 p.m. on Friday, as an additional half-holiday, as May Day is falling on a Saturday (1). 

The CSE is open for trading from Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 2.30 p.m. and unlike many Asian markets, the CSE does not close for lunch. However, the CSE has a pre-session, which is from 10.30 a.m. to 11 a.m. with different trading rules.
