WFE Database

We are committed to issue reliable and comparable markets statistics whose exclusive source is the data provided by member exchanges. Every year, the Federation makes efforts in order to improve the range of market data covered and increases the comparability level of the statistical information presented on its web site. For this purpose, a list of definitions and calculation methods which exchanges must follow when sending their data has been established. 

Three sections are available to consult WFE data in both local currency and USD:

  1. In the “monthly reports” section are available, in Excel format, all the monthly statistics reports since 2003.

  2. The monthly query tool allows retrieving data since 1990.

  3. The annual query tool allows retrieving data since 1975 and includes all the indicators published in the WFE annual report, some of which are only available on an annual basis.


While the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE) made every effort to check that the data are accurate and complete, it does not accept liability for any errors or omissions. WFE shall not be liable for any claims or losses of any nature arising directly or indirectly from use of the data. Please note that some technical footnotes available in the monthly statistics published by WFE are not available here in the raw data uploaded with the query tool. In order to explain some breaks in the time series or other statistical issues, the user will probably have to consult those footnotes in the monthly tables published by the WFE or in the WFE annual report. Statistics definitions are also publicly available in the annual report or on WFE website.

For reproduction, citation, distribution and transmission of any data please contact the Secretariat. It is otherwise strictly prohibited. The WFE will always have to be quoted when the statistics are used by a third party.

Access to the database is confirmation that you have understood and accepted these terms of usage.
