The Frankfurt Stock Exchange XETRA DAX Index

The Frankfurt Stock Exchange Xetra Dax is the main stock index in Germany. It represents the largest blue chip German companies. As with every major stock exchange, there are several indices. The most prestigious of these in Germany is the Xetra Dax 30.

The name is not taken from a sponsor as is the case in several other major exchanges. Instead, the Xetra comes from the electronic trading system and DAX from names of predecessor indices. These were the Deutsche Aktien Xchange 30 and before it the Deutscher Aktien-Index 30.

It will be no real surprise to the reader that at the time of writing, the main companies include several car manufacturers (such as BMW) and a number of former state monopolies which have been floated by the German government. These include companies such as Deutsche Bank, Deutsche Telekom and Deutsche Borse .

The DAX has a base value of 1,000 as at 31st December 1987 and since 18th June 1999, only XETRA prices are used to calculate all DAX indices.

The L-DAX index (Late DAX 30) is operated between 17.30 and 20.00 CET.
