Sometimes when I request data for a RIC, TRTH returns 3 RICs. They are the same for the first 3 or 4 letters, but some have DA, DC after the original RIC and before the ".". So what do they mean? all fields are the same for these RICs.
Referto Quote pages <AU/CHAR1> to <AU/CHAR4>.To give you an example, an ordinary RIC will be converted to deferred RIC with the extension DA or DC and it will trade for 10-15 days.It will revert back to the ordinary share, only the trading in deferred is complete within 15 days. E.g. When <BHP.AX> trades in deferred, it will have the RIC as <BHPDA.AX> or <BHPDC.AX> and will have a different ISIN. Once it completes the trading, it will revert back to <BHP.AX> with the old ISIN. Please note that the RICs mentioned here are just examples for better explanation.
