I am trying to get historical spot prices for soybeans using this code in R:
get_timeseries(list("0#SOYBWCAADR:"), list("*"), "2020-01-01T15:04:05", "2020-01-10T15:04:05")
I cannot get it to work, and I also can't seem to find the historical prices anywhere in the desktop terminal either. I know my API key is set up properly because I can pull historical data from "MSFT.O" by doing.
get_timeseries(list("MSFT.O:"), list("*"), "2020-01-01T15:04:05", "2020-01-10T15:04:05")
Your API call is not correct, please refer to the document at https://docs-developers.refinitiv.com/1583434790598/14684/book/en/eikon/index.html#get_timeseries
For MSFT.O, the call should be:
df = ek.get_timeseries("MSFT.O", fields='*', start_date = "2020-01-01T15:04:05", end_date = "2020-01-10T15:04:05") print(df)
For 0#SOYBWCAADR: , this is a chain RIC, so you should expand it to get a full RIC list first.
Then use the RIC list in the get_timeseries API call.
df,e = ek.get_data('0#SOYBWCAADR:','DSPLY_NAME') ric_list = df['Instrument'].tolist() df2 = ek.get_timeseries(ric_list, fields='*', start_date = "2020-01-01T15:04:05", end_date = "2020-01-10T15:04:05") df2
Eikon Data API(Python) only allows you to access to "default" view of the data.
So it is not possible to retrieve the data from other views.
Here is the data retrieved from Eikon Excel (Using "LAST_QUOTE" view)
If you need to retrieve data from "LAST_QUOTE" view, I suggest you to use Eikon Data API .NET
