Salam alaikum was rahmatullahi was barakatuh,
The concept of Settlement Cycle (T+2). Please check this out: https://www.tadawul.com.sa/wps/portal/tadawul/knowledge-center/about/settlement-cycle?locale=en
Question 1. So, can I invest in tadawul (Saudi Stock Exchange, https://www.google.com/search?q=tadawul&oq=tadawul&aqs=chrome.0.69i59j35i39j0l2j69i60l4.1519j0j4&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8), since I think tadawul uses this concept?
It says (i copied from the link which I have pasted above):
"GOALS OF ADOPTING A TWO BUSINESS DAY SETTLEMENT CYCLE
Increase the level of asset safety for investors, by providing enough time to verify transactions and deal with errors should they occur."
Question 2. Can I use tadawul for long-term investment?
Question 3. Can I use tadawul for short-term (like, within hours, minutes, seconds, days etc.) investment? Because I think you will own the asset (stock) after 2 days. So, I think I can’t sell after 2 days, right? Because I will be selling something that I own. I should not be selling that which I don’t own.
Please correct me if I am wrong anywhere.
Jazak Allah khair!
May Allah reward us all the highest level of paradise.
