Around 12:30 p.m., the DAX was calculated at around 15.195 points. This corresponds to a minus of 0,3 percent compared to the previous trading day.
At the top of the price list are the shares from BASF, Deutsche Telekom and Heidelbergcement, contrary to the trend. By far the largest discounts are in Infineon's shares, despite good business figures. Investors had apparently hoped for an even better group result. The European common currency trended weaker on Tuesday afternoon. One euro cost 1,2010 US dollars (-0,5 percent), and one dollar was accordingly available for 0,8328 euros.
