Caracteristics

TARGET2-SECURITIES operating day

The change of the T2S day starts at 18h45 on the D+1. A night-time process is scheduled between 20h00 and 3h00 and afterwards there is a technical maintenance window between 3h and 5h.

The night-time settlement process allows, in particular, the processing of new settlement instructions, settlement restrictions and liquidity transfers, as well as pending settlement instructions, in the settlement cycles.

The real-time settlement process begins at 5 am and ends:

  • at 16h for delivery against payment (DVP) and cash settlement restrictions.
  • at 16h30 for automatic reimbursement of collateral instructions for central bank auto-collateralisation and optional automatic cash sweep.
  • at 17h40 for treasury operations (BATM) and Eurosystem credit operations (CBO).
  • at 17h45 for incoming liquidity transfers and the automatic cash sweep from DCAs to the linked RTGS account.
  • at 18h for securities settlement restrictions and instructions without payment (FOP).

 

The real-time settlement process allows the processing of requests for updates to static data, the settlement of new settlement instructions, settlement restrictions and liquidity transfers. There are also several windows dedicated to partial settlement.

The end of the day is scheduled for 18h.
