Refer to the product overview, the APIs provide access to the following content sets:

  • News
  • Price time series
  • Symbology conversion
  • Fundamental and reference data

It doesn't provide a search functionality.

Currently, you can use Screener with Eikon Data API. However, it is not yet officially supported by Eikon Data API.

Screener can provide the list of RICs by Country of Exchange. The snippet code is:

screener_exp = 'SCREEN(U(IN(Equity(active,public,primary))/*UNV:Public*/), IN(TR.ExchangeCountryCode,"CA"))'
companies_data, err = ek.get_data(instruments=[screener_exp], fields=['TR.RIC'])
