Which are the abbreviations to cover the officials NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, and ARCA exchanges?

Hi, I would like to know which are the abbreviations to cover the officials NYSE, NASDAQ, AMEX, and ARCA exchanges. I've searched in the datascope/search page (https://hosted.datascope.reuters.com/datascope/search/default.aspx?scr=E) and look to me that the NYSE abbreviation is NYS, but I can't find the other ones. Can you please help me?

Also, if i send a request to https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/Search/EquitySearch and this is my requestBody:

{"SearchRequest": {"ExchangeCodes": ["NYS"], "PreferredIdentifierType": "Ric" }}

I've saw that in the response I get all instruments as:

{ ..."InstrumentType": "EquityQuote", "Exchange": "NYS",... }

Do you know if in the list are included ETFs, Indexes and ADRs? and if not, how can i get them?

@veyrejulien,

Abbreviations for exchanges

You can retrieve the full list of currently available exchanges (there are ~500) using the following API call:

https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/Search/GetExchanges

You can also retrieve the full list of available exchanges (there are ~1500, including historical ones) using the following API call:

https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/Search/GetHistoricalExchanges

You can also find the full list of abbreviations related to exchanges (historical and current) and their different offerings, in Customer Zone on this page.

The values below are the main ones, probably those you need, but I suggest you double check these versus your own requirements.

NYSE:

  • NYS - New York Stock Exchange

NASDAQ:

Here are the 4 main codes related to Nasdaq:

    • NAQ - Nasdaq Stock Exchange Consolidated Capital Market
    • NMQ - NASDAQ Stock Market Exchange Consolidated Large Cap
    • NMS - NASDAQ Stock Market Exchange Large Cap (formally known as NASDAQ NATIONAL MARKET SYSTEM)
    • NSM - Nasdaq Stock Exchange Global Select Market

    The one you want is probably NAQ.

    AMEX:

    • AFE - AMEX Stock Futures

    ARCA:

    • ARC - NYSE ArcaBook Equities


    Search: returned instrument type

    When you use EquitySearch you only receive Equity instruments. I made a few tests, it seems that ADR (e.g.: NVO.N), ETF and indices (e.g. .AD.N) are included in the results, i.e. are classified as EquityQuote instruments.

    Note: to get other instrument types you can use other searches that are specific to those instrument types (calls like FuturesAndOptionsSearch and others); the advantage of instrument type specific searches is that they allow you to choose instrument type specific search criteria.

    You can also use the simple InstrumentSearch, and restrict the results by using parameter InstrumentTypeGroups, an array which can contain any combination of the following values: "CollatetizedMortgageObligations", "Commodities", "Equities", "FuturesAndOptions", "GovCorp", "MortgageBackedSecurities", "Money", "Municipals", "Funds".

    The choice of call depends on your search criteria and use case.

    Thank you very much @Christiaan Meihsl is really helpful!

    Just one last doubt, where I can find the complete description of each NASDAQ Exchange? I've checked the file you linked but I can't understand the differences. For example, the ones in NMS are also in NAQ?

    @veyrejulien,

    Honestly, I don't know. Like most other moderators in this forum, which is dedicated to technical discussions on using Refinitiv APIs, I'm not a data specialist.

    For very specific data content query like this one, the best and speediest way to receive an answer is to open a content-related enquiry via MyRefinitiv or to call the Refinitiv Help Desk directly.
