Expanded real-time services on Deutsche Börse’s investor portal - Now in real time: Insight into Xetra order book and more than 2,700 indices

03/07/09

Deutsche Börse expands its range of real-time services, thus increasing transparency for private investors. The investor portal www.boerse-frankfurt.de now offers real-time insight into the order book of the fully electronic trading system Xetra. Private investors, investment advisors and portfolio managers can now obtain the prices of all shares traded on the Deutsche Börse platforms, in real time. Deutsche Börse thus provides private investors with easy access to information which was largely only available to professional traders before, and aids in making investment decisions with insight into the order book.

For a monthly price of €23.80, the website displays the ten best bid and ask prices of at least 10,000 equities in Xetra trading. Floor trading prices are also displayed in real time. The prices of all bonds, funds, certificates and warrants will continue to be disseminated free of charge in real time. Real-time spreads of 160 shares in the selection indices DAX®, MDAX®, SDAX® and TecDAX®, for which the Frankfurt Stock Exchange’s lead brokers ensure private investors an execution at the average trading spread, are also available free of charge.

The status of each of the indices calculated by Deutsche Börse Market Data & Analytics is also available in real time. A subscription to the index package, which includes around 2,700 indices, can be obtained for €2.38. This service includes the prices of the exchange traded funds (ETFs) and the exchange traded commodities (ETCs) with an order book depth of the ten best buy and sell offers on Xetra.

Since January, visitors to the investor portal www.boerse-frankfurt.de/orderbuch have been able to track the price and number of shares for all buy and sell orders placed in the Xetra trading system with a 15-minute delay and free of charge. The Xetra mask lists the stocks according to the index they are contained in. Investors can use the order book to track individual stocks or compile their own list to check the tradability of less liquid stocks, for example.
