What you need to know about making-up price.

A speculative investor may wish to carry over securities from one account to the next. The price of the securities would be fixed on the carry-over day, but the investor wouldn’t have to pay for the securities until the next accounting period. The price they would pay is called the ‘making-up price’, set as the market price at noon on the carry-over day. On the settling day, the buyer would pay or receive the difference between the making-up price and the contract price.

The term was also used in New York where making-up prices were fixed at the end of the day as per the American system of daily settlements.
