@georgezgj Those are not valid RIC's. Please use RIC search tool and key in your instrument (AUD for example) and select FX and Money category, to identify the appropriate RIC of interest to you.

Try CADUSD=X. It is a calculated cross rate.

In addition to CADUSD=X (which is a ten minute snapshot), you can also use CADUSD=R for a realtime Refinitiv calculated cross. The reason we have a calculated cross is the convention is USDCAD (which is CAD=) and very few people contributing for the other way around.

Both CADUSD=X and CADUSD=R didn't work, We use Elektron API to register the instruments to get rate update. Some currencies require the invert Rate( USD on the right), such as CAD, EUR,AUD and etc. What i need to know what instrument codes to register to get the invert rate.

Hi @georgezgj those are the correct codes. The market convention for the Canadian Dollar to based on 1 USD (which is of course different to most other global currencies) eg USD to CAD and the code for that is CAD= The coee for the Inverse is CADUSD=R - this is calculated as very few people provide us with a quote in the market. If those codes didnt work then there must be an issue, what error message did you get when you tried to call them in?
