Hi Aaron,

One way to do it is as follows:

var symbol = AddEquity( "SPY" ).Symbol;

// Assuming the above symbol has been subscribed to, we can query Securities[symbol]
var exchangeHours = Securities[symbol].Exchange.Hours;

// Get the hours on a particular day
var localMarketHours = exchangeHours.GetMarketHours( new DateTime( 2018, 5, 6 ) );

// The 0-second reference timespan ensures we get the first market open (in case there are several)
TimeSpan? open = localMarketHours.GetMarketOpen( TimeSpan.FromSeconds( 0 ), false );

// The 0-second reference timespan ensures we get the first market close (in case there are several)
TimeSpan? close = localMarketHours.GetMarketClose( TimeSpan.FromSeconds( 0 ), false );
