Comment on BTST/ATST( Buy/Acquire Today Sell tomorrow)

Sharekumar, you must read the article again. It’s fairly simple to understand. You have to note that when we talk about the risks of BTST trades, we talk about it in relation to the settlement process which is T + 2 for equities. T + 2 means trade day plus 2 days. We do not perceive many risks in the real-time market. If there’s decent amount of liquidity in the markets it’ll be easy to exit the stock, but if there’s a failure to delivery by the counter party after trading hours, it will be risky for BTST trades. I hope this information is clear now.
