NYSE Holiday Calendar

Description

Returns a holiday (closing days) calendar for the New York Stock Exchange.

Usage

holidayNYSE(year = getRmetricsOptions("currentYear"), 
            type = c("", "standard", "special"))

Arguments

year

an integer value or vector of years, formatted as YYYY.

type

what to include, a character string. The default is to return all closing days (holidays and specials). "standard" requests only closings associated with the standard public holidays, "special" gives the special closings only.

Details

holidayNYSE generates a list of the clossing days of the exchange for the requested years.

The default is to return all closing days (holidays and specials). type = "standard" requests only closings associated with the standard public holidays, type = "special" gives the special closings only.

Value

an object of class timeDate.

Note

The list of closing days returned by holidayNYSE was changed in timeDate version 4021.105, in that previously it did not include special closing days. This was perceived by some users as buggy. Also, the intent by the authors of the package seems to have been for it to return all closing days. Indeed, the default for isisBizday() is to drop weekends and days returned by holidayNYSE.

Argument type was also included in version 4021.105. The old behaviour can be obtained by using type = "standard".

The default for argument type is currently the empty string, since I couldn't come up with another string that would be universally easy to remember. Suggestions are welcome but a change will be only feasible if they come soon.
