3. Introducing HTTP and SFTP Download

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


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 Downloading with a script method.

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.


4. Downloading files with a script

Automatic data file downloads can be done with a variety of different download tools, depending on the platform you want to run them on. Most of the files which we offer to download are protected, thus you have to provide your user credentials (username/password) first. They can be provided as “Basic Authentication” in the header and hence it is not required to write download scripts which emulate a browser login session. 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.


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


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


curl --user username:password -L -o local-filename

Example to download the Historical Data for EURO STOXX 50®:
curl --user username:password -L -o h_sx5e.txt


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 -L -o local-filename
