TecDAX is based on prices generated in Xetra. The index is calculated on every trading day, between 9am and 5.30pm CET .
The following 30 companies make up the index as of the quarterly review effective 19 September 2011, which saw PSI and XING replace Phoenix Solar and Roth & Rau. The index was left unchanged at the quarterly review of December 2011.
