EAX DOES TIMELY TRADE SETTLEMENT
When cash settlement time after trade between a buyer and a seller is long then the market is not promoting liquidity. EAX ensures the commodity owner hold the electronic warehouse receipts and the stock is stored in its certified warehouse. The same way EAX hold the security of the stock in its warehouse it also requires buyers to make an initial pre-trade cash deposit equivalent to the quantity they would like to buy in a designated EAX settlement bank account.

The settlement is done base on the following trading rules:
- Transfer of cash to the sellers is done Two days after trade (T+2)
- Delivery of commodity to the buyers is done Seven Days after Trade (T+7)
