Holiday alert: Monday 19 February (President's Day)
Trading will be SLOW!

Dear traders:

Due to the US banking holiday this coming Monday (President's Day) - trading will be super SLOW! If you're not in the market right now, it would probably be best to not do anything until Tuesday! FYI, president's day is a celebration of George Washington (first president of the USA) and Abraham Lincoln (16th president); you can see their faces on the front of the $1 and $5 bills, respectively!

Also, please make sure to check your broker's website to see what changes in trading hours they may implement.

As an example, here is the mail that FxOpen sent to its traders:
