What is residual stock?


A residual stock is one that does not settle through CREST.  It is called 'residual' because the vast majority of trades are settled through CREST.

If you call to trade in a residual stock the trade would be placed in the same way as a CREST stock.  No special restrictions apply.  However, residual stocks are subject to a longer settlement period – usually 10 business days following the date of the trade.
