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


Files’ location on the website

Component Information, Factsheet Information, Historical Data, Composition Lists, Selection Lists, Review / Rebalancing Files can be found on index page under the “Data” tab.

Historical data shall be accessed through the index page under the “Archive” tab using the link below, where xxxx is a placeholder for main index symbol*. Choosing time frame of requested data and pressing GO will provide you with data on monthly basis in zip file.


*Please refer to the column AC in the Data Vendor Code sheet to find the main index symbol for the index you are interested in:


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 Downloading with a script method.

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 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

Downloading files with SFTP

All updates on the IT infrastructure can be found on 


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


Connection details

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


The need of Whitelisting 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 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 with the structure on the STOXX Website.

    • _common-files
    • <Main Index Symbol>
      • additional-files
      • components-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 column AC in the Data Vendor Code sheet to find the iSFTP folder location for the index you are interested in:


For example, the open files for different versions of the EURO STOXX 50 index can be found here:
