your request causes too large result (too many instruments and too large range of date), then you meet the limit of 3000 datapoints. That's why a lot data has NaN value.

Note that 'date' field doesn't exists for timeseries, right name is 'timestamp' that is included by default in result.

If you reduce the number of instrument and the range of date, the result makes sense:

>>> df2=ek.get_timeseries(['CARC.BA','CEL.BA'], interval="daily", fields=['open','high','low','close'], start_date='2000-01-01' , end_date='2002-01-01')
>>> df2.head()

@pablo
Did you mean to ask a question here? If yes, I'm not sure what you're asking. A bunch of RICs on your list are indeed invalid, e.g. SID.BA, EMDH.BA, ARAA22X3=BA, ARAA22Z3=BA etc. If you meant to ask something, would you mind elaborating on your question?
