016/2020 Migration of trading venue Börse Frankfurt to the T7 system postponedXetra Circular 016/20

Deutsche Börse intends to migrate the trading venue Börse Frankfurt from the Xetra trading system to the T7 system. Preparations at Deutsche Börse and the market participants are almost complete. The planned date for the migration was 9 March 2020.

However, due to the currently high volatility on the markets, the associated very high trading and processing volumes and the emergency measures for business continuity already introduced by numerous market participants as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19), the Management Board of the Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse (FWB®, the Frankfurt Stock Exchange) has decided to postpone the migration planned for 9 March 2020.

A new migration date has not yet been set. As soon as a new date has been set, Deutsche Börse will announce it immediately.
