Central Depository System
The Central Depository System (CDS) of the DSE acts like a bank for securities where various securities are deposited in safe custody to facilitate deliveries for DSE trades. By depositing securities into the CDS, the delivery of the securities in settlement of DSE trades can be achieved by electronic book entries instead of physically exchanging certificates (scrip). The securities deposited into the CDS may be pledged against a bank loan.
Trading is conducted through an Automated Trading System (ATS). This is an electronic system which matches bids and offers using an electronic matching engine. The ATS is integrated with the CDS to facilitate automated validation of securities holdings and straight through processing of securities transactions.
