What currency does the API function get_data report market cap info?

I am using get_data to extract closing prices and market cap data for a list of companies. Does this give me market cap reported in dollars or in domestic currency of the country of exchange?

Hi @sanhitha.jugulum

This is a duplicate question with https://community.developers.refinitiv.com/questions/62050/what-currency-does-the-api-report-market-cap-data.html


By default, it uses domestic currency from the instrument.

But you can also pass in currency parameter to do the conversion.
