    When can I square off my BE series shares if I purchased today[minimum holding period]? Can I close the position tomorrow?

      Hello Thambidurai,
      As per exchange’s T+2 settlement cycle, you are required to keep shares for 2 days. You can square off your shares after you get the delivery from exchange on T+2 days. However, you may buy today and sell tomorrow but before that we would recommend you to know the risk involved in BTST(buy today sell tomorrow) trades that may cause short delivery.
