Web3MediaBreaks – Upstream Article Talks T+2 to T+1 Settlement Cycle, Notes Introduction of T+0 Settlement

Company: Upstream
Category: News

Upstream, a MERJ Exchange stock market and global trading app, is discussing the transition to a T+1 settlement cycle for securities trading by NASDAQ and other U.S. capital markets, which means that trades of stocks, exchange-traded funds (“ETFs”), corporate bonds and other securities now settle in one business day instead of two. The article noted that “T+1” stands for “trade-day-plus-one-business-day” with trade settlement defined as the exchange of cash and securities between a buyer and seller after a trade is executed. According to the most recent Upstream article, despite U.S. capital markets transitioning to T+1, global markets lack a standard settlement time, which can vary by country and the type of security being traded. On average, most global markets are still operating at T+2. The article discussed the benefits of T+1, which include reduced counterparty risk, increased efficiency, lower margin requirements, enhanced liquidity use and operational improvement. In addition, the article pointed out that Upstream is one step ahead by offering T+0 settlement. Benefits of T+0 benefits include instant settlement, enhanced market confidence, improved liquidity management, reduced operational costs and increased trading volume. “While the broader markets have recently transitioned from T+2 to T+1 settlement times, Upstream introduces the concept of T+0 settlement, marking a favorable departure from the conventional settlement period,” stated the article. “Thanks to Upstream’s smart-contract powered matching engine, our trades are executed in real-time. This means there’s no delay between the occurrence of a trade and the updating of ownership records. With Upstream, the settlement process is instant, providing a beneficial leap in efficiency for issuers and their investors. . . . The transition to T+1 settlement times marks a significant improvement in the efficiency and security of U.S. securities transactions. While the broader market adapts to this change, Upstream remains ahead of the curve, offering T+0 settlement times and a cutting-edge trading platform that ensures immediate settlement and increased shareholder value. As the industry continues to evolve, Upstream is committed to providing innovative solutions that meet the needs of modern investors and issuers.”
