Boxing Day is a public holiday that is celebrated in many countries, particularly those with a significant British or Commonwealth influence. It falls on the day after Christmas Day and is a time for family gatherings, sporting events, and other festivities.
In terms of stock markets, the impact of Boxing Day on stock markets may vary depending on the country and region. For example, the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX) in Canada and the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) in Australia may see reduced trading activity as people take time off to celebrate the holiday. In some cases, these stock markets may close early or not be open at all on Boxing Day.
