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

+ For unmasked URL, please replace '/document' with '/documents/stoxxnet/Documents'



Downloading files with SFTP

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


Connection details
Host: sftp.stoxx.com
Port: 22
Log in with user and password provided.


The need of Whitelisting
sftp.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 domain name sftp.stoxx.com on the firewall. In case you don’t have this option (i.e. to add a domain name on the firewall), please contact Customer Support to be provided by direct SFTP access.


Available on the SFTP

  • Open and close files
  • CA & dividend forecast
  • Index divisor files
  • Currency report
  • Quarterly review files
  • In detail DVP reports for DVP indices


Folders Structure
STOXX Composition Files, Historical Data and Review Files are located in this folder structure  on the SFTP server:

  • stoxx-data
    • packages (accessing this level will depend on your user permissions)
      • common-files
      • package-name
        • composition-files
        • historical-data
        • review


For example, if looking for a Composition File from a Basic package, the URL to get to that folder would be this one:



Under “common-files” folder, you can find files that are not index-specific such as:

  • Corporate Actions Forecast
  • Dividend Forecast
  • STOXX Currencies
  • Vendor Codes Sheet


Download script
To download a data file from the STOXX SFTP, take as example this command line:

option confirm off
open sftp://username:password@sftp.stoxx.com -rawsettings ProxyMethod=3 ProxyHost=domain.here ProxyPort=8080
get -nopreservetime /user_folder/archive/compositionfiles/file.csv
