Quotation volume

The quantity of a given security that a designated sponsor or warrant issuer is prepared to trade at the price quoted.

In addition to providing a quotation volume, the designated sponsor or warrant issuer indicates the minimum quantity he is willing to trade even in highly volatile market phases. This minimum or effective quotation volume is substantially smaller than the regular quotation volume. Price quotes for a volume that is smaller than the minimum quotation volume are rejected by Xetra.
