Note on the monthly statistics
Boerse Stuttgart’s monthly statistics are reported on the basis of the order book turnover. The turnovers of all the securities traded on each trading day are documented clearly and verifiably. The recording of securities transactions by order book is practised by all intermediary-based German exchanges and serves as a basis for comparing trading turnovers. For the structured securities asset class Boerse Stuttgart also calculates the trading turnover according to the volume of customer orders executed and forwards these to the German
Structured Securities Association (Bundesverband für strukturierte Wertpapiere, BSW). This ensures that comparisons between the different exchanges can also be made with regard to structured securities.
