Access historical starmine data through python

Hello, I am trying to pull historical starmine data using the python Eikon Data API, example code below. Currently, this call just returns the most recent values for the respective fields. Is there any modification I can make to have it return historical data?


If not available in the python sdk, is there any other API call that I can make to get this historical time series?

import eikon as ek
ek.set_app_key(...)
df, err = ek.get_data(
['GOOG.O', 'MSFT.O', 'FB.O', 'AMZN.O', 'TWTR.K', 'AAPL.O'],                      ['TR.IVIntrinsicValue','TR.IVPriceToIntrinsicValue','TR.RelValEvSalesComponent','TR.PriceMoRegionRank'],
 {'SDate': 0, 'EDate': -10, 'FRQ': 'D', 'Curn': 'USD'}
)

Hi @brandon_ts

These 4 fields in your question do not support timeseries data.

So it is not possible to retrieve the data back in history on these fields.

You can use Data Item Browser to check supported parameters on any fields.
