lack of historical data through python API compared to EIKON

Hi guys,

Can you tell me why I am not able to retrive data on the belowed index prior to 2012 using the python API? I seem to be able to find charts, and data using the EIKON app - but fail to do so using the below call

Index: .dMIWO00000NEU

Call: ek.get_data([".dMIWO00000NEU"], fields=['TR.PRICECLOSE','TR.PRICECLOSE.date','TR.PRICECLOSE.calcdate'],parameters={'SDate':'2005-12-31','EDate':yesterday,'Frq':'m'})

Hi @me39

The database which contains "TR.PRICECLOSE" may not have data back to 2005 as in your request.

Please use this code which has data back to 2001.

df = ek.get_timeseries(".dMIWO00000NEU", start_date="2000-01-01", end_date = "2019-09-30", interval="monthly",fields="CLOSE")
df

Hi @me39

In addition to @chavalit.jintamalit answer you may still use your function but you need to replace TR.PRICECLOSE to TR.CLOSEPRICE. That field should be used for indices.

df, err = ek.get_data([".dMIWO00000NEU"], fields=['TR.CLOSEPRICE','TR.CLOSEPRICE.date','TR.CLOSEPRICE.calcdate'],parameters={'SDate':'2005-12-31','EDate':'0D','Frq':'m'})
