Can you be more specific regarding where you see these monikers? There are actually dozens of STOXX indices. – Tal Fishman Nov 1 '11 at 18:06
Tal, let's say .stoxx and .stoxxe, two rics from reuters.com – David Nov 1 '11 at 18:50
There are a set of indices for Europe and for countries in the Eurozone, so .STOXX50 includes Sweden, Switzerland & UK, .STOXX50E doesn't. – Richard Nov 1 '11 at 21:40

Stoxxe would be the benchmark for European stocks in Eur

Different. Data providers are using different symbols.

Sx5e biggest 50 European Eur stocks Sx5p biggest 50 pan European stocks Sxxp biggest 60@ pan euro stocks - 200 large cap 200 mid cap and 200 small caps Sxxe would be all Eur stocks put of the sxxp - around 380 names
