Is there a restriction on the number of news items we can retrieve using Python Eikon get_news_headlines API function. I seem to only be retrieving 10 items, even though the date_from and date_to arguments are from 2000 to 2019.
Appreciate your help.
Please add count(max is 100) to the get_news_headlines method.
import eikon as ek ek.set_app_key('You App Key') try: headlines = ek.get_news_headlines("NRG", count=20, raw_output=False) print(headlines['text']) except ek.EikonError as error: print(error)
You cannot retrieve more than 100 headlines in a single request using this interface. You can however submit multiple requests and retrieve news headlines in batches of 100 headlines each in a loop using the timestamp on the earliest headline returned in the previous batch as a value for date_to parameter in the next request.
Eikon is an end user product. Any data retrieved from Eikon is licensed for individual user's use only. You should also be aware that the depth of news history available through Eikon Data APIs is 15 months. You cannot retrieve news headlines or stories older than 15 months using Eikon Data APIs. If you need deeper history or need to consume news on an industrial scale, consider Refinitiv Machine Readable News proposition.
