Trade to Trade settlement is a segment where shares can be traded only for compulsory delivery basis. It means Trade to Trade shares cannot be traded on intraday. Each share purchased/sold which are parts of this segment need to be taken delivery by paying full amount. The settlement of scrips available in this segment is done on a trade for trade basis and no netting off is allowed for the day.
For example:- In Normal rolling settlement, one can trade stocks intraday (One can buy and sell a security on the same day).
Suppose you buy 1,000 shares of SUZLON at Rs.25 per share and sold these 1,000 shares for Rs.30 per on the same day (before the close of trading). You have gained Rs.5 per share (less brokerage/Other Expenses). This is the amount you will receive from your broker in the normal rolling settlement system.
But, if the same stock is under trade-for-trade segment, you will have to pay Rs.25,000 to take delivery of the shares you bought. Similarly, the quantity you have sold will have to be presented for delivery in Demat A/C. The Trade-for-Trade segment considers each transaction individually.
