List price

Price of a security traded on the exchange

With the changes to the German Stock Exchange Act (Börsengesetz) brought by the Fourth Financial Markets Promotion Act (Finanzmarktförderungsgesetz) of 2002, list prices (corresponding to the official German term "Kurs") were no longer offcially fixed by appointed brokers. The German term “Preis” (price) is now preferred over “Kurs”.

The price published for a stock or warrant is per single unit. Bonds and futures contracts are noted as a percentage of the security’s nominal value.

Our glossary explains important financial terms and should not leave any questions unanswered. However, if you are missing a definition, please write to us at We will then include the term if possible.
