The Australian Stock Exchange closed early at 2.10pm on December 24th and remained closed for Christmas and Boxing Day.
It will, however, be open tomorrow, with gold stocks expected to benefit from some positive movements in the commodity price.
Gold has been moving higher over the past few days, trading around US$1,503 per ounce.
Trading on Tuesday reflected this move in gold with some solid gains.
One of the more influential gold ETFs, the GDXJ VanEck Vectors Junior Gold Miners ETF, which trades in the US, was also up 3.7% Tuesday night Australian time.
