Deutsche Börse has opened up the Xetra order book, offering swift insight into its fully electronic trading system.
Visitors to the investor portal boerse-frankfurt.com/orderbook can track the price and number of shares for all buy and sell orders placed in the Xetra trading system, making the order book situation for all stocks traded at Deutsche Börse transparent. The open order book helps in the investment-decision process.
Private investors, investment advisors and portfolio managers can see the ten best bid/ask prices with a delay of 15 minutes free of charge and without registration, thus giving them easy access to information that was previously reserved mostly for professional traders.
The Xetra mask lists the stocks according to the index they are contained in.
However, investors can also use the order book to track individual stocks or compile their own list to check the tradability of less liquid stocks, for example.
