What is the DAX 30 Index?
The DAX formerly the Deutscher Aktien Index, is a stock index that represents 40 blue-chip German companies that trade on the Frankfurt Exchange. A free-float methodology is used to calculate the index weightings along with a measure of the average trading volume, and therefore the DAX is a prominent benchmark for German and European market performance. Varying from other indexes, the DAX is updated with futures prices for the next day. The Dax lists major European companies and among their top performers are Airbus, Allianz and Adidas.
Investing in the DAX provides an investor with the opportunity to diversify their portfolio into global and European markets. If an individual is heavily invested in tech stocks such as the Nasdaq indices, the German DAX gives investors exposure to automakers, pharmaceutical companies, heavy industrial companies, and financial stocks.
DAX 30 Index Performance
Geopolitical crises in 2018 caused German and global shares to drop, and unresolved trade wars between China and the US, and Brexit was cause for much investor uncertainty. The Federal Reserve in the US raised interest rates twice, where om Europe, low interest rates remained unchanged, and the DAX lost around 18% in value.
However, the DAX was able to resist heavy losses in the years preceding 2018. German stocks were able to take advantage of loose monetary policy and low interest rated in the United States and in the Eurozone. From 2008 to 2012, investors were swayed by the European financial crisis, and so financial markets, including the DAX, lost significant value in 2008 until mid-2009, and again over the coronavirus pandemic in the second quarter of 2020.
