In addition to that, there is a trading fee for Xetra. For Scalable Broker this is only 0.01 % of the executed volume (minimum 1.50 euros). The trading venue fee covers all third-party costs for trading and settlement. The settlement is carried out by the custodian bank.

From 12:15 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., you can place or cancel orders in our app or online by logging in to your Scalable Capital account. Stop and limit orders created outside trading hours are executed at the next possible time during trading hours. Market orders are generally only valid for the day on which they are created. If they are created before the opening of the stock exchange, they are executed at the next possible time during trading hours. Market orders placed after trading closes expire.
Please note that different trading hours may apply to certain derivatives. You can find further information in the “Key Investor Information Document” or on the providers’ websites.

You can trade more than 375,000 derivatives in Scalable Broker. You can choose between derivatives by Goldman Sachs, HSBC or HypoVereinsbank onemarkets. To be able to trade derivatives, you have to successfully conduct the suitability test. This test is designed to assess your knowledge and experience with regards to derivatives. This is required since trading in derivatives can result in high and quick losses.You can check the availability of a specific derivative with our Derivatives Search.
In the Scalable Capital Broker, you have various financial products at your disposal with which you can invest in the gold market. For example, you can invest in ETCs that invest in physical gold.
In the Scalable Broker, you can also trade fixed-income bonds as well. We will gradually expand our bond offering.
New initial public offerings (IPOs) can currently not be subscribed to via the Scalable Broker. We make every effort to ensure that shares can be listed on gettex and traded via our platform on the first trading day following a successful IPO.
You cannot buy fractions directly. However, with all savings plans we also buy fractions of ETFs for you so that your savings amount can be fully invested. As long as your savings plan is active, these fractions are repeatedly combined to form whole number securities.
If you want to sell a security that has been saved and therefore contains fractions, you can of course also sell the resulting fractions again. Please note that no individual fractions can be sold, but rather the entire position must be sold.
Limit order: With this order, a limit price can be defined. The order will only be executed at this predefined price or better. This way, you can protect yourself against sudden price jumps. Due to the limit, there is a possibility that the order can be executed partially or not at all. The limit order is valid for 360 days. During this period, it can be cancelled at any time, provided that not all ordered items have been executed.
Stop order: With this order, a stop price can be defined. When the stop price is reached, your order will be activated as a market order and executed at the best possible price during trading hours. Under certain circumstances, this price can deviate significantly from the stop price due to price jumps. It may happen that the order is never activated and therefore not executed.
The stop order is valid for 360 days. During this period, it can be cancelled at any time, provided that not all ordered items have been executed.
Stop limit order: As a combination of the two preceding order types, with this order both a limit and a stop price are specified. When the stop price is reached, your order will be activated as a limit order and then executed only at the limit price or better. This way, you can protect yourself against sudden price jumps. On the other hand, it may happen that the order can only be partially executed or not at all. The stop limit order is valid for 360 days. During this period, it can be cancelled at any time, provided that not all ordered items have been executed.
Please note: If you enter both a stop and a limit price in the order screen, this does not constitute an OCO order. The Scalable Broker does not currently offer a One-Cancels-the-Other ("OCO") order.
Market order: This is only offered for sell orders. For buy orders for which no limit price is defined (see above), a security limit is automatically set (max. 5 % above the last ask price). This protects you against significant price jumps when buying.
Sell orders can also be placed as market orders. In this case, the order is executed at the next possible price during trading hours. Due to price jumps, this may differ significantly from the last price at the time the order was placed. The market order is only valid for the trading day on which it was placed.
Directly after a security purchase, you can also create automatic orders with which you can realise potential profits or limit losses:
Take-profit order: The take-profit order can be created directly after a security purchase. It is a limit order where you set a price above the buy price at which a security is automatically sold. The aim is to realise potential profits before the price falls again.
Stop-loss order: A stop-loss order can be created after a security has been bought. With a stop-loss order, you set a price below the purchase price, which may be reached or fallen below at the maximum. If this occurs, a sell order is triggered. With a stop-loss order, you can determine the maximum loss you can make with a security. This allows you to limit the risk of larger losses to a certain degree.

If you are liable to pay tax in Germany, you will receive an annual tax certificate for your securities account and your clearing account, on condition that you have carried out tax-relevant transactions in the year.
This will usually be provided to you electronically for the respective past year by the end of April of the following year. You will find it in the mailbox of your Scalable client area.
If you're using our wealth management with securities account management via ING, you will receive your annual tax certificate by the end of April in your mailbox in ING's internet banking.
With an exemption order, you instruct your bank to exempt accruing investment income from automatic tax deduction. Without this order, the bank will pay 25 % capital gains tax as well as 5.5 % solidarity surcharge and, if applicable, church tax to the tax office.
From 2023, the statutory maximum limits for an exemption order of an individual will be increased to 1,000 euros and 2,000 euros for joint exemption order of a married couple or registered partner.
To set up or change an exemption order, please log into your personal client area on our website and open the "Profile" menu item. In the "Taxes" section, you can set up or change your exemption order.
The exemption order applies at bank level. So, for example, if you have asset management with us with securities account management at Baader Bank, the exemption order set up for this also applies to the Scalable Broker.
Please submit your exemption order before the end of the current year. Exemption orders are always valid from 1 January of the current year or from the beginning of the business relationship.
