The entire German Stock Exchange consists of eight stock exchanges situated in different parts of the country. All of these Stock Exchanges are enormously potent and significant to the world economy. Being the largest in Europe, the German economy is a close third behind those of the US & Japan.
The WTO has declared Germany to be the largest exporter of goods in the world, including the exports to other Eurozone countries. In terms of Purchasing Power Parity, Germany is ranked fifth. Therefore it is not surprising that the German Stock Exchange is one of the most influential Stock Exchanges of the world to determine world trade and commerce.
