I am interested in the following:
- New issues
- Rating changes
- Universe of IG & HY bonds in US/EU space at any point in time
Given the vast amounts of data, it is not possible for me to use FINIM (new issues), RATMON (rating changes) and GOVSRCH (universe) on the Eikon Desktop GUI (See case number #08567969). I tried using the Eikon Data API, but was met with many frustrations on attempting to parse data that is similar to these 3 pages inside Eikon.
Currently I am giving COM APIs a try given answers from previous Refinitiv developers, but I hope to seek some clarity on the following
1. Is there a way for me to replicate the pages as seen in FINIM, RATMON and GOVSRCH? I do not actually need to replicate it, but I do want to be able to reconcile information across these 3 pages so that I can obtain my desired bond universe.
2. Is there a easier way for me to obtain these data? I am aware of the tutorials on Eikon Data API and COM APIs (VBA section), but those are remotely basic for obvious reasons, and before I dive into extracting the required data (I need everything about the bonds i.e. from their ISINs to their issuer parent to the fundamentals of each parents - all as time series daily if possible), I hope to get some thoughts from admins on the possibility of these
