 The "current timestamp" register should do the trick (details on the SQL Reference)  Once you are connected to a database just type this from the prompt:

db2 values current timestamp

  If what you want to do is insert it as a value for a column do this:

INSERT INTO mytable (timestampColumn, otherColumn)
  VALUES (CURRENT TIMESTAMP, someValue)...

  Hope this helps!
