Daily benchmark stock market (equity) indices for selected major countries, as reported by the Financial Times. Data Buffet carries: Argentina, Australia, Egypt, Finland, Russia, Singapore, U.K., Venezuela.
From the World Equity Markets at a Glance daily report (Financial Times, FT.com, copyright Thomson Reuters).
The report includes 61 countries plus cross-border indices, with from one to 11 indices per country. Data Buffet includes only a minority of them (13 series); most of our international benchmark coverage is sourced via Telekurs.
The report shows the three most recent days (i.e., those observed by the majority of the markets), plus high and low values and dates for the calendar year. Data Buffet does not have canned analytics or formulas to reproduce the latter.
Not all equity markets operate on the same daily schedule, so some time series will show longer or irregular lags. The source report distinguishes between several gap- and revised-states (closed, unavailable, correction) but Data Buffet does not.
Figures are subject to official recalculation.
FT.com does not report values for days it is closed, even if the individual exchanges are open. For example, it is closed for International Workers' Day (May 1) and omits values for the U.S. Dow Jones, Nasdaq, NYSE, etc. indexes, although this is not a holiday for them. In FT.com's report, these are marked "(u)" for "unavailable," as opposed to "(c)" for "closed." Data Buffet does not differentiate; all such missing values are simply "ND".
