1. The physical place on an exchange where transactions occur. Posts are most important to exchanges that use the open outcry or a similar system. They are becoming increasingly irrelevant as more exchanges conduct trading electronically. Posts are also called trading posts.

2. To recognize a transaction on an account. For example, if one writes a check for $100 and $100 is deducted from that account three days later, the transaction is set to post on the third day.
