In the first half year of 2011 Börse Berlin gained a plus in turnover of 29 per cent in its broker aided specialist trade compared to the same period in 2010. Equiduct stabilizes its turnover at 8.2 bn Euro in the second quarter 2011.
Despite an increasingly difficult market, Börse Berlin is content with the result of the first half year of 2011. Due to a successful first quarter in broker aided trading, turnover increased by 29 per cent to 4.9 bn Euro compared to the first six months of 2010. Number of trades declined slightly by 2.5 per cent and reached a total of 120.826.
Once again equities proved to be the most important securities in the broker aided market. Whereas they amounted to 70 per cent of all trades in the first quarter, their share declined by 7.6 per cent to 65 per cent in the second quarter. Bonds, on the other hand, drew the private investors´ interest. Number of trades in these instruments rose to 20.3 per cent. This equals a plus of 26 per cent. Obviously investors grow increasingly unsettled by the crisis in Greece and are afraid of a global inflation.
Equiduct turnover declined marginally (€8.2 billion vs. €8.3 billion in Q1 2011). The average price improvement per trade increased by 15% to 2.52€.
