Start of trading in Uber shares simultaneously with New York
The list of international stocks on the Vienna Stock Exchange continues to grow by four popular shares. From Friday, 10 May 2019, the shares of the transport service provider Uber Technologies Inc. will also be available on the global market directly after the IPO on the New York Stock Exchange from around 3:30 pm. According to media reports, the IPO will make Uber one of the world's largest tech listings. Furthermore, trading in shares of the companies Beyond Meat Inc (vegan meat substitute manufacturer), Jumia Technologies AG-ADR (African online trader) and Zoom Video Communication (service provider for video conferences) will also start tomorrow.
"With intraday trading admissions to the global market, the Vienna Stock Exchange has its finger on the pulse of the market. Austrian investors have the opportunity to place orders cost-effectively via their home exchange parallel to events on the American market and thus take advantage of global investment opportunities ," says Christoph Boschan, CEO of the Vienna Stock Exchange.
The global market segment of the Vienna Stock Exchange currently offers investors more than 620 international blue chips from 26 countries. Instead of having to navigate around time zones, investors can trade on their familiar marketplace during local trading hours (9:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) at domestic fees and obtain information in their native language. The international segment in Vienna is well received and has become the second-strongest market segment. Three market makers (Baader Bank, Lang & Schwarz and Raiffeisen Centrobank) ensure attractive prices by providing additional liquidity.
