Trading and official activities at Dhaka Stock Exchange (DSE) will remain closed for nine days from August 9 to 17, including weekly holidays, on the occasion of Eid-ul-Azha.
The decision on Eid vacation came at a board meeting of the DSE recently, DSE Deputy General Manager (PR) Shafiqur Rahman confirmed.
The Eid-ul-Azha holiday will run from August 11 to 13. As August 9, 10 and 16, 17 are weekends and August 15 is public holiday and the DSE board declared August 14 a holiday to keep the vacation uninterrupted, the vacation will stretch to a total of nine days.
After Eid vacation, the trading and official activities will resume on August 18.
The port city bourse, the Chittagong Stock Exchange (CSE), will also follow suit.
