Could anyone explain the difference between STOXX and STOXXE? Which is the right index for benchmarking European stocks?


  • $\begingroup$ Can you be more specific regarding where you see these monikers? There are actually dozens of STOXX indices. $\endgroup$ – Tal Fishman Nov 1 '11 at 18:06

    $\begingroup$ There are a set of indices for Europe and for countries in the Eurozone, so .STOXX50 includes Sweden, Switzerland & UK, .STOXX50E doesn't. $\endgroup$ – 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
  • $\begingroup$ I am not sure about the pan euro stocks, can you explain? $\endgroup$ – David Nov 1 '11 at 18:52
