Assignment/Exercise Reg T Call (A/RT)


Cause: Purchasing or selling stock due to option assignment or exercise in an amount that exceeds the account’s overnight buying power.

Due: Trade Date + 1 business day (T + 1) to meet through liquidation. Generally, Trade date + 5 business days (T + 5) to meet by depositing funds. OptionsHouse may issue A/RT calls T+1 at its discretion, based on risk and/or other factors.

Meeting a A/RT Call: Closure of the assigned/exercised security(s) in an amount sufficient to generate Reg T margin release, deposit of funds in the amount of the call, or a deposit of fully paid for, marginable securities that generate sufficient Reg T release. Closing the assigned position on T+1 will meet the call and avoid a Reg T liquidation strike.
