I am looking to download historical Brent contracts. For example, on the Reuters terminal or on the Excel API, if I am looking for the Brent contract expiring in December 2012, I am able to download prices by using the RIC code "LCOZ2^1".
However, on the Eikon API for Python, when I type:
bre = ek.get_timeseries('LCOZ2ˆ1', start_date = dt.datetime(2007,1,1))
EikonError: 'Error code Error | LCOZ2ˆ1: Invalid RIC | '
Is it normal? How can I access the historical data for this contract through the API?
