trade at settlement

Sometime ago on the trading floor I heard of a strategy that uses TAS ( trade at settlement ) to capture 4-5 ticks on the CL market . I don't remember many details since I was trading stocks at that time. Sounded like MOC to me....Does anyone know/traded anything like that ?

Trade at Settlement (TAS) Trades are trades that will be executed at the settlement price (which is established between 2:28 and 2:30) or a few ticks above or below that price.

I think that there is no guarantee that a trade is executed, as trades can only be executed, if buy and sell orders match.

Here is a link to an article of how the TAS trades are abused by some of the larger traders...
