Date 01/02/2002

A total of 357 billion euros in volume was traded on the German stock exchanges in January. That is about 40 percent higher than the previous month's level (December 2001: 255 billion euros). The January total comprises 270 billion euros in equities, warrants and exchange-traded funds as well as 87 billion euros in fixed-income securities.

The order-book statistics, which are based on single counting of all transactions in the Xetra order-book and in broker-supported trading on the floor, show that some 94.2 billion euros in volume was traded in equities on the German stock exchanges in January, about 41 percent above the previous month's level (December 2001: 67 billion euros). Of this total, 87.6 billion euros was posted in German equities, and some 6.6 billion euros in foreign equities. In domestic shares, about 92.4 percent of the volume was posted on Xetra, another 5.2 percent in trading on the floor of the Frankfurt stock exchange (FWB Frankfurter Wertpapierbörse).

In January 2002, the Xetra share of the trading volume in DAX blue chips remained high at about 95 percent. In the MDAX (mid-cap DAX) stocks, about 77 percent of the volume was traded on Xetra, some 38 percent of the SDAX (small-cap DAX) volume and about 66 percent of the volume in Neuer Markt stocks. In foreign shares, about 87 percent of the total volume was posted on Xetra and the Frankfurt trading floor.

Siemens was the highest-volume DAX blue chip in January 2002, with volume of 11.9 billion euros traded in its shares. Altana was the leading MDAX stock with 423.9 million euros in volume, and Aixtron topped the list of Neuer Markt stocks with 209.4 million euros in shares traded. In the SMAX (small-cap quality) segment, Indus Holding ranked first with roughly 10.2 million euros in share turnover. The highest-volume exchange-traded fund again in January was the DAX EX with 1.3 billion euros in turnover. IBM was the leading stock in the Xetra US Stars segment, with volume of 120.9 million euros traded in its shares.
