Market Holiday on 11th May 2022


The Colombo Stock Exchange (CSE) continues to monitor the presence of conditions necessary to enable smooth and fair stock market operations.

While the Real Time Gross Settlement (RTGS) inter-bank payment system will be operational today, May 11, banks have notified that they will remain closed for normal banking operations to their customers.

In this regard, and due to the large number of participants involved in the stock market requiring banking access for trade facilitation, in consultation with the Securities and Exchange Commission of Sri Lanka (SEC) the CSE has reluctantly made the decision to keep the market closed today, May 11th, 2022.

The CSE Board remains committed to reopening the market operations as soon as conditions are favorable for smooth functioning of all activities.
