BREAKING DOWN THE ‘T+1 (T+2,T+3)’
To determine T+1 (T+2, t+3) settlement date only days are counted, and those that the stock market is open. T+1 means that in the event of the deal on Monday, the settlement would occur on Tuesday. In addition, the T+3 means that the transaction occurs on Monday should be resolved by Thursday, assuming no holidays occur between these days. But if you sell a security with a T+3 settlement date Friday, of property and the transfer of money is not necessary to pass to the next environment.
The period between the transaction and settlement is not a flexible time in which the investor can withdraw from the deal. The deal is made in day trades – this is the only assignment that will not take place until later.
Why the settlement happens in T+1 days or more after surgery
In the past, security operations were done manually and not electronically. Investors will need to wait for delivery of the security, which was a certificate and they would not have to pay to get it. Since delivery times could vary and prices could fluctuate, market regulators, determine the period of time during which securities and cash have to be delivered.
A few years ago, the maturity date of the securities is T+5, or five business days after the date of the transaction. Until recently, the village was set on T+3. Today is T+2 (i.e. two business days after the date of the transaction).
