How can I get only Equities, Indexes, ETFs and ADR from the "main market"?

Hi, I'm using TRTH api with this url https://hosted.datascopeapi.reuters.com/RestApi/v1/Search/EquitySearch with this body

requestBody = {
        "SearchRequest": {
            "ExchangeCodes": ["NYS", "ARC", "ASE", "NAQ"],
            "PreferredIdentifierType": "Ric"
        }
    }

and everything is working fine, but how can I get only Equities, Indexes, ETFs and ADR from the "main market" and filter out the OTC, Pink Sheets, Options, etc.?

If it's not possible, do you have any workaround to suggest?

@veyrejulien,

It is not possible to directly filter out secondary markets by tweaking the EquitySearch query parameters.

But maybe it would be possible to filter them out using various fields from a Terms And Conditions request ? I'm thinking of fields like "Asset Category Description" (which would identify Equity Closed Funds versus Ordinary equities), "Primary Trading RIC" (which could be compared to the RIC itself), "Is Primary Issue Flag", "Place of Listing Flag" ... I'm speculating here, because I'm not a data specialist (like most moderators in this forum), but maybe this leads you to a solution.

That said, this query is beyond the knowledge of most of the moderators of this forum, which is for software developers using Refinitiv APIs, and technical discussions. For precise data queries, I strongly suggest you directly contact the TRTH support team via MyRefinitiv. In the product field, select "Thomson Reuters Tick History v2". Alternatively, you can call the Refinitiv Helpdesk number in your country.
