What investors need to know about holidays on JSE Exchange
The Johannesburg Stock Exchange (JSE) is the largest stock exchange in Africa, providing a platform for investors to trade in a range of financial instruments, including equities, bonds, and derivatives. As with any stock exchange, the JSE observes a set of holidays throughout the year that affect its trading hours and operations. This article will provide an overview of the JSE holidays for the year 2023.
The JSE will be closed for business on the following public holidays in 2023:
- New Year’s Day: January 1st

It is important to note that the JSE may also choose to observe additional holidays or half-day trading sessions at its discretion. In such cases, the exchange will notify investors and traders well in advance through official channels.
On the days when the JSE is closed for business, investors and traders will not be able to place orders or conduct any transactions on the exchange. However, it is important to note that while the JSE may be closed, other international stock exchanges may still be open for business, providing opportunities for investors to trade in other markets.
In addition to the public holidays, the JSE also observes a number of non-trading days throughout the year for administrative and technical purposes. These non-trading days are not considered public holidays and will not affect the JSE’s trading hours or operations. The non-trading days for 2023 have not yet been announced but will likely be made available to the public in due course.
In conclusion, as the largest stock exchange in Africa, the JSE plays a crucial role in facilitating investment and trading activities in South Africa and beyond. Understanding the JSE’s holiday schedule is an essential part of successful trading, as it enables investors to plan their trades and avoid any potential disruptions to their investment strategies. By familiarizing themselves with the JSE’s holiday schedule, investors can make informed decisions and capitalize on the opportunities presented by the South African market.
