I'm currently subscribing to bid prices for a small handful of US bonds via the RFA API. What field can I request to receive exchange timestamps? I've tried "EXCHANGE TIME" 1067 and "QUOTIM MS" (3855). I haven't received values for either field. Any alternatives?
How to get timestamps for US bonds (e.g. US1MT=RR for United States 1 Month Benchmark, US093229819= for JPM 4.16% 19-Jun-2018, etc.). Please refer to the following FIDs below:
PRIMACT_1 (FID 393) - most recent Bid
PRIMACT_2 (FID 394) - second most recent Bid
PRIMACT_3 (FID 395) - third most recent Bid
SEC_ACT_1 (FID 275) - most recent Ask
SEC_ACT_2 (FID 276) - second most recent Ask
SEC_ACT_3 (FID 277) - third most recent Ask
VALUE_TS1 - timestamp in seconds for FID 393 and 275
VALUE_TS2 - timestamp in seconds for FID 394 and 276
VALUE_TS3 - timestamp in seconds for FID 395 and 277
VALUE_DT1 - date for FID 393 and 275
VALUE_DT2 - date for FID 394 and 276
VALUE_DT3 - date for FID 395 and 277
I suggest you check with content support so they can confirm that the RICs you are using support the fields or not. The data feed might use another field to represent the times.
