What is the most correct way of retrieving adjusted closed prices via Python Eikon API?

Should I use this formula

ek.get_timeseries(['TD.TO'], fields=['CLOSE'], corax='adjusted', start_date='2022-01-01', end_date='2022-11-09', interval='daily')

or the formula with rd.get_gistory for the same information?


What do you recommend?


If you recommend rd.get_history could you please provide the most correct way of implementing it on my particular case?

Could you please explain more corax='adjusted' parameter or send me the documentation where I could read it?

Thank you!

Hi @alekseenkova.marina

I would recommend you utilize the rd.get_history() call. Looking at the capabilities, you can specify adjustments at a more granular level as well as retrieve more fields within the response. For example:

rd.get_history(universe='TD.TO', interval='1D', 
               start='2022-01-01', end='2022-11-09',
               adjustments=Adjustments.EXCHANGE_CORRECTION)

I would also recommend you review the 'adjustments' within the historical reference guide defined within the RDP Playground. If you still require more details, you should open a ticket within the Helpdesk - they will bring in a historical content expert to address further details around adjustments. If you are accessing this content within the desktop (Eikon or Workspace), you can press F1 - Help & Support and ask your question there.

I think you forgot to write the parameter - close price as it was written in the question. Could you please show the complete formula?

Thanks!

Hi @alekseenkova.marina

I did not forget to include the 'CLOSE' parameter because the field doesn't exist. What I showed above is a way to see ALL fields associated with 1-day prices for TD.TO. Looking at the result, you can see there are fields called: 'ALT_CLOSE' and 'TRDPRC_1'. I don't know the difference between these fields, but I believe either one is the field you are after. I suggested to contact the helpdesk as they would have a much better understanding of the meaning behind these fields.

I would also recommend you review the 'adjustments' within the historical reference guide defined within the RDP Playground


Could you please show where exactly on the page I could find that @nick.zincone ?
