How can I get the index constituents with float shares and Total Shares via API COM at any given date ?

I tried to retrieve data using DEX2 TimeSeries with :

Item list : 0#.FCHI

Fields : TR.IndexConstituentRIC;TR.FreeFloat

Request Parameters : '"Sdate":"2019-10-31"

The IndexConstituent is right but the free float is wrong for all the securities.

Thank you for your help.

Hi @h.k

I can confirm that the DEX2 API retrieves the data correctly in technical point of view.

(But I cannot confirm if the data is correct or not)

Hi @h.k

I tried to retrieve TR.FreeFloat on a few instruments using Data Item Browser and using DEX2 API.

I received the same data.

Can you share your result please?

Thanks.

Hello,

Thank you for your reply.

I expected to get the float shares of CAC40/01 Quote which are real time values (see attached CaptureCAC01). For example, the float shares of ACCP.PA is TotalShares * Float = =270045923*0,7 = 189032146,1.

However, when I retrieve data using DEX2 TimeSeries TR.SharesFreeFloat and SDate=20191106, I get a different value (see attached CaptureDEX2).

Thank you for your help.
