How Doe the DAX Work?
The DAX-100 included 30 DAX equities and 70 MDAX equities listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. However, since March 24, 2003, the MDAX reduced the number of equities from 70 to 50 and the former DAX-100 was substituted by the HDAX. DAX-100 included companies like Siemens, Lufthansa, Adidas, Bayer, Porsche, and others.
The DAX (Deutscher Aktien Index) - The DAX or DAX 30 takes the prices from the Xetra trading venue. Xetra is operated by the Deutsche Borse. DAX 30 measures the performance of the 30 largest and most actively traded German companies. The performance is measured by the volume of the order book and market economy. DAX30 may not reflect the vitality of the whole economy as it deals with a small selection.
The MDAX - MDAX is also calculated by Deutsche Borse. It contains 50 Prime standard shares which are not there on DAX 30 and are from traditional sectors but not technology. Prime Standard is a section of the Regulated market with a higher level of transparency.
The TecDAX - TecDAX tracks 30 top traded technology companies on Frankfurt stock exchange that are not already there on DAX.
The HDAX - HDAX is the reformed version of DAX-100. It includes DAX, MDAX, and TecDAX. It reflects the price development of all shares present in these three sections. It is a broader index covering all sectors registered in the EU regulated markets Prime Standard segment.
