Fourth of July weekend is here and this year will certainly not have the same celebrations people in the U.S. are accustomed to due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The question many investors are wondering is if the market is open because the Fourth of July falls on a Saturday this year. Will the stock market be available for trading this Friday, the day before the Fourth of July, or will it be closed in observance?
