Sorry, for the incorrect RIC above. Yes it is =WM rather than =W - confounding my error by copied the original typo over and over again - oh and yes XTO.N etc is not a valid RIC anymore (it was in 2010 but was delisted by the Exchange after a takeover)

We supply WM benchmark rates via RICs, so you can pull in the rates in the same way you do for other instruments. eg <USDGBPFIX=W> is the 4pm close for GBP which appears in the field BID (22) and ASK (25).

I'm not sure which benchmark rates you are after, but they are all available by navigating through the chains starting with <0#WMREUTERS>, the spot benchmarks are available navigating from <0#WMSPOT>

You will need to exlude the "<>" - sorry this is my way of showing its a RIC. Other than that, yes this should be an example of the identifier you need in a batch request; USDGBPFIX=W

I don't think RIC

USDGBPFIX=W

is correct to request, it is giving me error :

@brajesh.shuklafil,

In general, all of our market data APIs are data agnostic - for each one, you simply tell the API which RIC you would like to retrieve. If you're using any one of our market data APIs, RFA C++ included, you simply need to subscribe to the item using a standard Consumer application. There is no need to send it as part of a batch request. You can refer to the Quick Start guides or tutorials within the Developer Portal to get you up and going quickly. Regarding the above benchmark, try using: "USDGBPFIX=WM" (I don't believe "USDGBPFIX=W" exists).

As a side note, if you are looking for an API to access this content and RFA C++ is not mandatory, I would suggest you use one of our new strategic APIs, Elektron Message API for C++. It was designed to be significantly easier to use and will get you up and running very quickly. The API also has quick start and tutorials for you to get up to speed.

@brajesh.shuklafil

The RIC you used is missing a 'M' at the end. Please try again with the RIC USDGBPFIX=WM

@brajesh.shuklafil

The "NotFound" message is for XTO.N which I tested on EIkon and confirmed it is not a valid RIC. It has nothing to do with USDGBPFIX=WM.
