Extended trading hours boost Frankfurt Certificate Exchange trading
January 8, 2019

With 2.6 million executed orders, five percent more transactions in structured products were executed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in the past year than in 2017. The total trading volume on the certificates exchange amounted to EUR 13.7 billion, five percent less than in the previous year.

"The extension of trading hours has had a positive effect," says Florian Claus, Board Member of operator Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG. Since June, structured products have traded in Frankfurt from 8 am to 10 pm. "Evening trading is especially being used intensively, for example to react to events in the US," says Claus.

With 2.4 million trades, leverage products made up the lion's share of transactions, an increase of ten percent over 2017. Only around 200,000 transactions were executed in investment products, which corresponds to a 29 percent decline. Due to the increased number of leverage products, the average order volume decreased by ten percent to €5,300.

"With the advantages of strictly regulated exchange trading, additional services such as our Automatic Trade Control as well as a broad range of certificates and warrants, we believe we are well prepared for 2019," says Simone Kahnt-Eckner, a Board Member of Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG.

"Structured products make it possible to achieve returns even in falling or sideways markets. We will continue to explain to investors that there is no way around saving with securities in the long term, especially in the current difficult market environment. And structured products are a sensible addition to portfolios."
