The Equity Transaction Costs Index (ATI), which shows the development of online brokers' order fees, has been subject to only minor fluctuations so far in 2013. In the second quarter of 2013, a change in the ING DiBa (maximum order commission and trading venue fees for XETRA trading) resulted in a small increase from the previous 72.90 points to the current 73.26 index points.
In September 2012, the ATI was still at 72.38 points. However, if you factor in inflation over the past few years, you can certainly talk about falling order fees. Particularly in comparison with traditional branch banks, it is clear that buying or selling shares via an online broker is by far the more favorable alternative.
The current fees for share purchases via XETRA can be found in our Compare order calculator.
