We’re coming up on the Thanksgiving holiday, but I’ll spare you the turkey and dressing theme this year. The holiday does make for an awkward trading environment, falling on a Thursday. Many market participants are traveling and thus not participating on Wednesday, and many take Black Friday off. The CME in its infinite quest for trading volume is open for business on Friday even if few are interested. This has potential for mayhem.
