What is Freeriding?

When you buy or sell a stock or an exchange-traded fund (ETF), it typically settles in two working days. Freeriding refers to buying shares or ETFs and then selling them before the purchase has settled. Freeriding is a violation of the Federal Reserve Board's Regulation T and may result in a suspension of your account on Bamboo.
