How to decode ask value from POLONIA= RIC

Is there a way to identify from a RIC fields how the ask value is "encoded".

For example, in POLONIA= RIC, the consolidate fields value of CF_ASK and CF_BID are:

CF_ASK: +2320

CF_BID: +1.33


What is the real value of ask: 1.2320, 2.320, 2.2320?

How can we identify the logic to use to extract the price?


Thanks,

Hi Zoya,


I can see the CF_fields from Eikon Quote or from Data Access - Composite (hosted on AWS).

I think RFA doesn’t expose composite fields.

But the question still the same without consolidate fields.

In this case we use:

TRDPRC_1: +1.27

SEC_ACT_1: +1580



What is the rule to decode Ask value for this RIC?


Thanks and regards,

Christophe

Thank Veerapath,

In this case I think there is an issue with consolidated field CF_ASK who is set with the volume.

There is also the same issue on Eikon 360 Menu where ask value is displayed with volume:

For "POLONIA=" bid is the rate and ask is the volume in million PLN - more

Is there a way to dynamically identify for some RIC that the ask is a volume and not a price?

maybe condition like ask==volume in code

I would like to not have volume in CF_ASK field.

I think it is the best way to fix this issue.

Do you know at which level the CF_ field is set? Can we change the rule for this type of RIC.
