I hope someone can shed some light on the following:
I am using the following snippet to get the current active list of shares on the London Stock Exchange:
df,e =ek.get_data('SCREEN(U(IN(Equity(active,public,countryprimaryquote))/*UNV:Public*/), IN(TR.ExchangeMarketIdCode,"XLON"), IN(TR.InstrumentType,"Depository Receipt","Equities","Fully Paid Ordinary Shares","Ordinary Shares","Partly Paid Ordinary Shares"))',['TR.RIC','TR.CommonName', 'TR.EXCHANGEMARKETIDCODE','TR.ISPRIMARYINSTRUMENT','TR.ISPRIMARYQUOTE','TR.ISCOUNTRYPRIMARYQUOTE','TR.ISIN','TR.InstrumentType', 'TR.TRBCEconomicSector', 'TR.TRBCEconSectorCode'])
This returns roughly 6900 records, but according the the LSE website and their instrument list (https://www.londonstockexchange.com/statistics/companies-and-issuers/companies-and-issuers.htm. Excel doc on page) there are only:
Given that I am filtering for active, public and CountryPrimary I would expect to get back the same or slightly less... not > 4000 more RICs....
Can anyone explain this? Where is the main issue. - is the instrument list from the LSE incomplete and I should not worry or is the screener returning more than it should? Am I missing or misunderstanding something with regards to how and what to filter to get the list of equities that represent the UK LSE trading market!
Thank you kindly
Can you try using SCREENER GUI and see the number of instruments you got back?And see if you have the same amount of instruments.
