Stooq website is one of the best places to get historical market data for several countries including the United States and Germany (XETRA). You can download the recent and historical data for different period: daily, hourly, 5-minutes. Historical data can be downloaded in CSV or Metastock format (binary).
Note that ".DE" suffix is added to ticker symbols when you retrieve data for German stocks.
Another advantage of using Stooq is that the data is delivered in a compressed format and thus it reduces the download time.
- Visit the following URL: http://stooq.com/db/h/
- Depending on the data you need, click on the appropriate link
- To get the recent data only, click on "Metastock Files"
- The list of German ticker symbol can be found here: http://stooq.com/db/l/?g=29Boerse-Frankfurt
The official website of the Frankfurt stock exchange (Boerse Frankfurt) offers tick, intraday and EOD charting for stocks, ETFs and other securities listed.
Although, there is not link to download data from Boerse Frankfurt, you can use the following URL to download EOD data:http://www.boerse-frankfurt.de/parts/bo ... 8+20120828
The format is as follows:http://www.boerse-frankfurt.de/parts/bo ... t=HISTORY+
[SYMBOL ID]:6:6+DAILY+[NUMBER OF DAYS]+[START DATE]+[END DATE]
As you can see, the symbol name is numeric (BMW = 294) and this is unfortunate because you will have to find the numeric id of each stock before being able to use this download link correctly. As a conclusion, we recommend that you use instead one of the above downloaders to get end-of-day and intraday data for stocks listed on German exchanges.
