We publish over 350 market data indicators, ranging from statistics on exchange traded products such as equities, derivatives and ETFs to granular data on IPOs, and the WFE’s Median Simple Spread liquidity indicator.

Statistics Portal

The WFE is in the process of transitioning to a new Statistics Database. This database provides registered users with access to a wide range of market indicators. The data is collected on a monthly and annual basis from WFE members, affiliates and non-members. More information on the WFE statistics can be found in the WFE’s Statistics Definitions Manual.


  • Ability to extract time series data across exchanges and indicators
  • Graphical presentation of data
  • Ability to download data in various formats

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 the WFE website. For reproduction, citation, distribution and transmission of any data please contact the Secretariat.
