I am using the RDP Quantitative Analytics financial-contracts API
My question is about the date logic when the MarketDataDate is left unspecified. The specs indicate that it will default to "Today". However, when should we expect the API to change to the next day? Is it UTC based?
Request instrument Accrued Interest at 9:00 EST = 13:00 UTC = default MarkedDataDate would be current date (eg Aug 30)
Request instrument Accrued Interest at 21:00 EST = 1:00 UTC (next day) = should we expect MarketDataDate to be the next date (eg Aug 31)?
NOTE: we are aware of the ability to specify the marketDataDate as a pricing parameter. We expect specifying is the best way to be sure of the date for calculations. We are asking for cases when we are either unable to specify or need to rely in default logic.
Thanks very much for the help
