BTST Trading Explained
“Buy Today, Sell Tomorrow” trading is a trading facility wherein traders can sell the shares before delivery (or before the shares are credited in the Demat account).
In the normal trading process, delivery shares are credited in the demat account on T+2 days (T being the day of order execution). You cannot sell shares before delivery in normal trading. However, with BTST, you can sell shares on the same day or the next day. This helps traders to benefit from short-term gain or loss in the stocks.
