Xetra trading architecture

Xetra trading architecture

Participants currently use the Xetra technology for trading on the trading venue Börse Frankfurt. With T7 Release 8.0, the trading model "Continuous Auction with Specialist" will be introduced on the trading technology T7. This is the last step in the consolidation of the FWB trading system. 

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. Please refer to circular 016/20 for further details.
