Innovations in the trading system, which is also used on Xetra and the Eurex derivatives exchange, will be continuously available to the Vienna Stock Exchange and its partners. This ensures that the Vienna Stock Exchange, and the stock exchanges it serves, will keep their trading technology at the cutting edge.

20-year technology partnership
Wiener Börse and Deutsche Börse have been in a 20-year technology partnership. Deutsche Börse’s trading system has been in operation on the Austrian cash market since November 1999. After establishing its cooperation network in Central and Eastern Europe, Wiener Börse now offers trading system services for five markets. In December 2010, it rolled out the trading system on the Ljubljana Stock Exchange. The Prague Stock Exchange followed in November 2012, the Budapest Stock Exchange in December 2013 and, finally, the Zagreb Stock Exchange in July 2017.
Various other exchanges in Europe and around the world also use Deutsche Börse’s trading infrastructure. These include the global derivatives exchange Eurex, the Xetra trading venue in Frankfurt and the European Energy Exchange (EEX), which all use the T7 system. In addition, cash market trading at the Shanghai Stock Exchange is based on technologies from Deutsche Börse.
