Yahoo Tickers for DAX,MDAX,SDAX

November 25, 2012

(This article was first published on Copula, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

In my various R - Tests I'm using usually the Yahoo Dataservice implemented in quantmod
suppressWarnings(try(getSymbols(ticker, index.class="POSIXct", from=initDate, to=to,src="yahoo"),silent=TRUE)) 
If you would like to run some backtests on the DAX,MDAX or SDAX and you were wondering what the yahoo symbol is, here is a list of the tickers you need.
