Xetra® trading platform launched

Friday, 20 June 2008

On June 16, 2008 Bulgarian Stock Exchange Sofia successfully launched one of the most advanced and sophisticated trading platforms, the Deutsche Börses fully electronic pan-European trading platform – Xetra®. The Bulgarian Stock Exchanges decision to implement Xetra® is based on the awareness of the necessity for internationalization and integration with leading capital markets. This means that, on the one hand, the main technical requirements are in place so that the Xetra® trading participants already connected can directly access the Bulgarian market. On the other hand, the Bulgarian participants will have the opportunity to trade in more than 17,000 financial instruments listed on Xetra®, according to the principle of common entry point after meeting the membership requirements.
