Deutsche Börse Cash Market provides the XLM on DAX® listed blue chips for the last trading day on a daily basis.

The XLM is given in basis points (100 basis points = 1 per cent) in relation to the relative market impact costs for the so-called roundtrip (simultaneous purchase and sale of a position) for a given order volume. An XLM of 10 basis points and an order volume of €25,000, for example, mean that the market impact costs for the purchase and sale of this share totalled €25.

Detailed explanations can be found in the article “The Market Impact – Liquidity Measure in Electronic Securities Trading”.
