The Bond Market will be closed on Presidents Day this year!
Bond Market Holidays vary from year to year. This is because the bond market is not centralized and has no central trading venue like NYSE or NASDAQ which makes decisions regarding when the market is closed.
You may find one group of bond traders on holiday, while another might be hard at work. However, even bond traders do need the occasional day off. SIFMA is an organization of financial firms and they suggest that financial institutions use the following dates and times for holidays.
If you want to trade bonds on these days you may find it a little difficult
