What is "Short Delivery"?

What is "Short Delivery" and Auctions on the NSE?

Can you buy a share and still not get it, two days after you purchase? And if you sell it without actually having it, what happens?

Deepak Shenoy takes you through:

  • The concept of short delivery
  • Auctions on the NSE
  • Why you get your shares four days later instead of just two
  • How you might be penalized for selling what you don't own
  • Why this is important even if you are a "Buy Today, Sell Tomorrow" (BTST) trader.

Hi Deepak,

I just love your short and informative videos.

I've a quick question - whenever I sell some shares, I get the money in my account immediately. My transaction summary email at eod shows the ledger balance with the credited amount equal to the sell value of shares. So, how does t+2 settlement work out here? Please enlighten!

Thanks!

Hi Deepak, I am a first time

Hi Deepak,
I am a first time visitor to your site and quite liked the content. Would definitely be visiting more frequently.

BTW, which software do you use to create these flash videos (from PPTs I guess)? I was looking to convert some of my PPTs to flash and wanted someone to share their experience rather than me reinventing the wheel!!

Cheers,G
