US bond market closed on Tuesday for Sandy

Oct 29 (Reuters) - The Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) recommended on Monday that the U.S. bond market stay closed on Tuesday Oct. 30 due to Hurricane Sandy.

The market is scheduled for an early close at noon ET on Monday, per SIFMA's recommendations. The equity markets are closed Monday, though the industry has not yet decided whether to stay closed on Tuesday.

SIFMA said primary dealers will need to determine if they intend to provide limited staffing on funding desks on Tuesday, October 30, in order to accommodate any potential open-market operations by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

SIFMA is also recommending full closes for the trading of U.S.-dollar denominated government securities in Tokyo and London.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
