Request Intraday Forex Data using Python API.

Hello,

I'd like to get FX data intraday. Or at least, request it at a given cut-off time (let's say 15 hours). I've been seeing the parameters on TR.BidPrice but no such thing appears to be available.

In the desktop I managed to see a chart where you could see intraday data, but I would like to request that as a time-series.

I know the data requested in a daily frequency for TR.BidPrice is for an hour of 22:00 hours GMT (non-DST time), is there a way to request it at will? At any other different time I want?

Thanks for your help!

You need to use get_timeseries method instead of get_data. For documentation see Eikon Data APIs for Python - Reference Guide under the Documentation tab on Eikon Data APIs section on this portal. See also this tutorial for examples.
