Auction schedule

Auction schedule

Xetra® permits continuous trading and auctions. In continuous trading, an order is executed immediately as soon as a corresponding counter order is available. Auctions are conducted at the beginning and end of trading as well as several times during the day. They concentrate liquidity in a security at a specific point in time.

* Auctions have a random end. Times stated are the earliest times of the end of an auction.

Please note: On the last trading day of a year different trading times apply. These times are published in the correspondent announcements.

On Eurex settlement days the intraday auction for DAX stocks has a duration of 5 instead of 2 minutes.

All times are an approximation. Timestamps are meant as the earliest timestamp for the explicit trading phase change. Relevant are the trading phase changes in the trading system for Xetra.
