4618A. Clearance and Settlement

This rule is no longer applicable. NASD Rule 4618A has been superseded by FINRA Rule 6274. Please consult the appropriate FINRA Rule.

(a) A member shall clear and settle transactions effected on the ADF in ADF-eligible securities that are eligible for net settlement through the facilities of a registered clearing agency that uses a continuous net settlement system. This requirement may be satisfied by direct participation, use of direct clearing services, or by entry into a correspondent clearing arrangement with another member that clears trades through such an agency.

(b) Notwithstanding paragraph (a), transactions in ADF-eligible securities may be settled "ex-clearing" provided that both parties to the transaction agree.
