Historical DAX Futures Data – Format Details

Portara provides historical DAX intraday data to CTAs, hedge funds, portfolio managers, quants and traders and institutions.

DAX Index futures data can be split into three main headings:

  • DAX daily futures data – which includes either the last price or the settlement
  • DAX intraday futures data – which includes trade volume
  • DAX tick data – which can include the bid, ask and settle

You can purchase historical DAX intraday data as individual contracts or in a continuous form.

Continuous futures data can be formatted into back-adjusted, forward-adjusted, ratio adjusted and zero adjusted series. Portara can create bespoke rules for each DAX Index futures contract based on volume, open interest, tick size and calendar date variations. Control delivery month combinations, timezone settings and timestamps that follow exchange or local time globally for any location.

Portara’s standard daily futures data is made up of five data points – open, high, low, last-price and settle. Simply choose to have the daily close based on the last price or the settle depending on whether you wish follow extended sessions or just the day session.

Portara’s DAX intraday data is supplied as default in 1-minute bar. However, you may also choose other bar granularities such as 2 minute bar, 3 minute bar, 5 minute bar, 10 minute bar, 15 minute bar, 30 minute bar, hourly bar etc. You can also have us extract DAX Index daily data straight from the intraday database. In this case, you would choose the session (even if you need to cross midnight) and we can supply the custom DAX Index data between only between the custom session markers you choose.

Portara provides DAX tick data in ‘Trades Only’ form or as ‘Level 1’ tick data, which includes the bids and asks. Download DAX sample data from the table above. Our default format timestamp is to the millisecond. DAX tick data includes price, the trade volume, and other trade indicators such as bid, ask, trade and settle.

Remember to compare the file size of trades only data to level 1 tick data as they can vary by factors of 10 to 100 fold. If you have questions simply email us and one of our technicians will guide you.


All of our historical data is updated on a daily basis four times per day at the end of the Asian, European, Early US and Globex session. Portara’s enterprise software solution provides timely updates to your futures data, along with compression, roll and custom formatting features on CQG deep history databases. DAX historical data updates are usually ready around half an hour after markets close. No exchange fees or other CQG products are necessary.
