I have noticed that we receive multiple messages in RSSL_DMT_MARKET_PRICE, of type RSSL_MC_UPDATE and with an event type RDM_UPD_EVENT_TYPE_CORRECTION.
I would like to know what an event of type "correction" means : why do we receive such an event instead of a quote event, trade event, etc ?
I have not found much information in the documentation, and the answers for the only similar question I found (https://community.developers.refinitiv.com/questions/7491/why-does-a-quote-in-an-rsslupdatemsgupdatetype-con.html) seem to imply this this should not be a regular occurence.
RDM_UPD_EVENT_TYPE_CORRECTION means the update message contains a correction to previously delivered data.
You will receive this update message when there are previous updates that need correction; i.e. the update was canceled.
Please note that this type of update message is usually sent from the exchange and the behavior may differ for different exchanges.
So, for example; RIC <GNC.AX> have one correction message on 23/07/2018

The correction update has a few general information fields, but the field that you should be looking for is FID 6587 [CAN_TRD_ID] which is the trade id number of a canceled or corrected trade event. We can use this number to trace back to the previous update that has the same number.
