bB (price addendum)

’’bezahlt Brief’’ = market cleared, further offerings (not all sell orders with a limit at the current quotation were completed)

A price addendum is a code that is added to the price in floor trading. It states in what way the respective order situation is to be taken into account as the price is fixed. This information is part of the tick data.

’’bB’’ stands for ’’bezahlt Brief’’ and means that it was not possible to fully execute the sell orders limited to the fixed price. There was a surplus supply.
