Complete documentation for tickhistory USER Qualifier

According to a Tickhistory support FAQ article (title "What does USER Qualifiers indicate in Tick History?" It apperas in a sidebar and I can't find a link to it), tickhistory trades include a generic refinitiv-generated `USER` Qualifier field that is portable across exchanges. The only values mentioned in that article are:

  • Off Book Trades[USER]
  • Exhausted Bid and Ask[USER]
  • Block Trade [USER]
  • Previous Day Trade[USER]

I have also seen in data:

  • Special Trades[USER]

Can someone provide a link to the complete list of possible values for this qualifier field?

These documents seem to document exchange qualifier codes. I would like documentation for the refinitiv-derived `[USER]` qualifier. For example, I downloaded " Tick History V2 Futures Qualifier Code " ( and opened "CME.xls." The only [USER] qualifier documented in that sheet is

  • Quote Exhausted Bid and Ask[USER]

But I see the following in CME data extracted from tickhistory

  • Block Trade[USER]
  • Special Trades[USER]

I have already reached out to support and will post the answer here if they provide a link.
