Memorial Day is a federal holiday, which means there’s no mail and certain finances are put on hold as well. While most banks are closed, a few choose to stay open, so it may be best to check with your local branches. Online banking and ATMs will, of course, remain open, though transactions such as transfers may not show up until the next day. Unfortunately, the stock market is closed.
