Technically, there are two means to automatically download STOXX Data: HTTP and SFTP.



Introducing HTTP and SFTP Download

  • HTTP (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) is the communication protocol that lets data files be downloaded from the STOXX website. Manual download of a data file just requires a mouse click on the corresponding icon.
    If you are interested on automated data download by HTTP, check the HTTP Download Manager and cURL methods.

    If you download files regularly and manually, take a look at How to use the “One Click Download” to get an easier and faster experience.


  • SFTP (Secure File Transfer Protocol)* access to STOXX Data is supported, and you can get access to STOXX files. This method is ideal for more sophisticated and larger file transfers.
    The access to the SFTP data is restricted to a combination of unique user ID (username) and password.

    * To acquire this service, please contact your Sales Representative or Customer Support.



Downloading files with an HTTP Download Manager

Automatic data download is facilitated by accepting the user credentials as "Basic Authentication" header. It is therefore not necessary nor recommended to write download scripts which emulate a browser login session.

To schedule a periodic download of one or more files, the easiest way is to install an HTTP Download Manager on the local computer. HTTP Download Managers can be easily found on the Internet, either as proprietary applications or freeware Open Source software.

A suitable Download Manager must allow to specify username and password for Basic Authentication. There you have to provide your email address as username and the password you chose during the MySTOXX subscription process. Beware that with a wrong username/password, the download appears to succeed but the file contains the HTML code of the login page rather than the requested data.

Note also that some download managers require a special option to send username/password immediately to the server without waiting for an authentication challenge.

For example, recent versions of GNU Wget (http://www.gnu.org/software/wget/wget.html) require the option:




Downloading files with cURL

If you do not already have a Download Manager at your disposal, we recommend the Open Source product cURL. It is a powerful command-line tool available as ready-to-use packages for a large variety of platforms at http://curl.haxx.se/download.html.


To download a data file from the STOXX website, use the command below:


curl --user username:password https://www.stoxx.com/download/... --location-trusted


If you must go through a proxy in order to reach the Internet, add this command line switch:


curl --proxy host:port --user username:password https://www.stoxx.com/download/... --location-trusted

Downloading files with SFTP

We have recently launched a new SFTP environment which is fully integrated with our STOXX Website: the new iSFTP. Please note that we are currently operating both environments in parallel but we would advise you to switch over to iSFTP as we will decommission the old SFTP environment in the future. Any updates are communicated on https://www.stoxx.com/systems-itFor reference, you can find some information related to the old SFTP environment at the bottom of this section.  


If you do not already have an SFTP client at your disposal, we recommend WinSCP. 


Connection details

Host: data.stoxx.com
Port: 22
Credentials: The credentials for the STOXX Website and iSFTP are harmonized to allow clients to connect with a unified username and password. Your username can be found on https://www.stoxx.com/my-profile.


The need of Whitelisting
data.stoxx.com is served from AWS ELB (Elastic Load Balancer).
Due to a high availability setup, ELB IP addresses are subject to change at any point of time.
We recommend to whitelist the hostname data.stoxx.com on the firewall. In case you don’t have this option (i.e. to configure hostnames on your firewall), please contact Customer Support to be provided with direct iSFTP access.


Folder Structure

The folder structure on the iSFTP server is driven by the main index symbols and aligned the structure on the STOXX Website.

    • _common-files
    • <Main Index Symbol>
      • additional-files
      • composition-files
      • historical-files
      • review-files


The main index symbol groups all variants of an index (different currencies and return types).

Please refer to the Data Vendor Code sheet to find the iSFTP folder location for the index you are interested in:



For example, the open file for the EURO STOXX 50 EUR price version can be found here:
