T+0

T+0

(Transaction plus 0 days) In financial processing, the ability to complete a stock transaction in the same day it was made, which includes settlement, payment and transfer of ownership. This remains a long-term goal. By 2004, an equity stock trade was "down" to T+3 status, a significant reduction from even the 1990s. Yet, many procedural hurdles remain in the process so that T+0 is not expected in the near future.

The Egyptian Financial Supervisory Authority (EFSA) has decided to reintroduce T+0, or same day settlements on the Egyptian Exchange (EGX) starting from Thursday 23 May
T+0 settlements give traders the option to sell or buy all or part of the shares which they have already bought or sold during the same trading session.
Halting T+0 settlements was a precautionary measure that EFSA introduced after the 25 January Revolution in order to shore up capital on the nation's stock exchange after its 55-day closure during and after the revolution.
"The reason is that T+0 is more like gambling than trading," he added.
Economist Ahmed Al-Outafy predicted that the reintroduction of T+0 settlements will increase EGX capital by 15%.
Until February, when president Hosni Mubarak was toppled by huge popular protests, investors were allowed to buy and sell many shares the same day (T+0) but anyone holding stocks by the end of each session then had to settle two days later (T+2).
