Carry

To furnish the money. A man asks his broker to "carry the bonds two days " for him. If he agrees, the broker understands he will not be paid for the bonds until the expiration of that time, but in the meantime he gets no additional " promise to pay" or security on the part of the customer. In this case it is more or less of an accommodation to the customer; it is simply a delayed delivery on a contract to buy. In a "joint account" (see that subject) one of the parties may agree to "carry" the bonds until sold, receiving certain special compensation therefor, but having no other security for furnishing the money than the bonds themselves. " Carry " is a word very commonly used in financial matters with many slightly different applications, but the above should be sufficient to make its meaning understood, however used. (See next subject.)
