Are Banks Open On Martin Luther King Day, Monday, January 17th 2011 is a national holiday; it is Martin Luther King Day. Many people will ask, “are the banks open on Martin Luther King Day?” and the answer is no. It is also true that MLK day is a holiday for the stock market. The New York Stock Exchange and NASDAQ will be closed with banks.
With millions of people go to work on Monday, MLK, it will be interesting to see how many question whether banks will be open. It is a holiday quite unique in that many companies conduct private companies, but it is a government holiday. Most schools, universities and other government institutions will not open on Martin Luther King Day.
If bank customers are looking for deposits, then it will probably be the only option is an ATM. In recent years, many banks have offered for bank deposits through an ATM, even if it is cash or check. As technology continues to grow, it will be interesting to see if we should go to the bank for any transaction.
There will probably be more important sales and offers from major retailers like every day to highlight low prices. With what is true, it could be the case that many are looking to get a little extra money. Once again, it will probably be the case that only ATM options are available when it comes to withdraw money.
With many Americans struggling greatly when it comes to high interest rate debts that might be a good time to step back and create a budget. Rather than going out and spending money on MLK Day that could be a great opportunity to review some of the personal finance and understand how to relieve the debt problem.
Here is a list of what is open and what is closed on Monday, Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
