I am running Eikon API Proxy on Mac, version 1.0.102. For many fields I can see values on the data item browser (for bonds) like CF_BID, or TRADE_DATE, but anytime I query for these fields using Eikon Data API in Python, they never get retrieved, only returning None values. Why am I unable to retrieve these programmatically?
Hi @javan.graham, You can filter the fields in data item browser, by typing in the RIC code for the item you are interested in, in which case only the applicable fields are shown.
These fields are relevant to equities and can be pulled for equity quotes like:
>>> df, err = ek.get_data(['GOOG.O','MSFT.O', 'FB.O'], ['CF_LAST', 'CF_BID', 'TRADE_DATE'])
Instrument CF_LAST CF_BID TRADE_DATE
0 GOOG.O 1228.8400 1228.60 2019-07-30
1 MSFT.O 140.8435 140.84 2019-07-30
2 FB.O 196.4850 196.47 2019-07-30
