Trade date

Also found in: Wikipedia.

Trade date

The date that the counterparties in an interest rate swap commit to the swap. Also, the day on which a security or a commodity future trade actually takes place. Trades generally settle (are paid for) 1-5 business days after a trade date. With stocks, settlement is generally 3 business days after the trade. The settlement date usually follows the trade date by five business days, but varies depending on the transaction and method of delivery used.

Trade Date

The date on which a transaction occurs, especially the trade of a security or derivative. It is important to note that the trade date differs from the settlement date, which can range from one to five days following the trade date. On the trade date, ownership of the securities being traded transfers from the seller to the buyer, but the seller does not receive payment until the settlement date.
