I'm looking to get a particular data value out of the Eikon Python API. The Datastream DFO code is RI and it's called Total Return Index. I cannot for the life of me find it in the Data Item Browser that comes with the proxy. Is this value even available through the API, or only DFO?
This index is only available through DFO. If you use it to calculate total return on a stock, then you can get total return from Eikon Data API directly using the field TR.TotalReturn, e.g. this will give the total return on Thomson Reuters stock between 01-JAN-17 and 01-JAN-18:
