If you had an accounts with a SL stock broker before Dec 31st 2010, they used to give credit to customers to buy shares ( which the customers did not have to settle within T+3 days) without cash in hand. So many customers were in Debt to Brokers. SEC disallowed unauthorized Brokers to extend credit for more than T+3 days starting Jan 1st 2011. Out of the existing credit given to customers (given before Dec 31st) SEC said that 50 % had to be cleared by March 31st and the rest June 31st 2011. So the customers in debt to brokers either had to volunteerily sell their shares to settle ( clear) their debt or the broker had to force sell them to recover their debt.
Also for the shares bought after Jan 1st 2011 the customer had to settled them within T+5 days or else the broker are allowed to force sell them to recover debt as you know.
