CDAX Index components | values (DE0008469602)
The CDAX (abbreviation for Composite DAX) was introduced on September 17, 1993 at Deutsche Börse AG as an additional index to the well-known German share index (DAX). While the DAX comprises a small but significant number of stocks with only 30 standard stocks, the CDAX includes all German stocks listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange in the General Standard and Prime Standard. Foreign stocks from Qiagen or Airbus, for example, are not included in the CDAX. It is calculated by Deutsche Börse as a performance index and as a price index. December 30, 1987 was chosen as the starting point for the calculation and a value of 100 points was set. There are historical share prices, so that the price index can be looked back up to 1970.
