The early bird catches the worm on Xontro ‒ Chinese and US markets are open and you want to participate. No problem, Berlin lead brokers are early birds.
Trading Start 8:00 on Xontro
As of December 23rd 2010 trading on Xontro opens at 8:00 CET at Börse Berlin. The early start is particularly useful for investors who want to react in a timely way to developments or news in the American and Asian markets, giving members a trading advantage particularly in times of volatile markets.
Our lead brokers are obliged to publish up to date Quotes (Bid and Ask sides with volumes) for national and international index stocks throughout the day. For all other stocks lead brokers have to look closely at price developments on the respective reference markets.
