Mixed Reactions From Netizens To Saturday's Full-Day Trading Surprise

Traders and investors were mixed in their reactions to a special full-day of trading on Saturday and a market holiday on Monday.

What Happened: The Securities and Exchange Board of India announced late on Friday that the equities market would be open on Saturday for a full session of trading. However, currency and commodity markets will remain closed.

Many on social media platform X said the last-minute notice from SEBI would cause unnecessary hassle for traders.

Moreover, adding to the confusion, mutual funds would not accept subscriptions as it is a non-business day for asset managers, adding to the confusion.

One X user also said that many traders may have made other plans for the weekends and would likely miss out on a session of trading due to the lack of previous intimation.

Others, however, defended the move, comparing it to the hour of Muhurat trading during Diwali.
