Hi, I am looking to download close,high,low, open and volume for a continuous futures chain, historically. I am using the Eikon API 'get_data' function with parameters equal to the start and end dates of my period.
Example RIC - EScv1, which is the SP500 mini.
Unfortunately I am not able to obtain data for Volume, I used the fields TR.Volume and the CF_Volume fields but none of them worked. I do not get any historical data for volume.
I get everything else (Close, Open, Low, High) by using the correct field...
Would anybody have an idea?
@Tulkkas try using TR.ACCUMULATEDVOLUME for the historical volume. You can check all fields available for any RIC using the Data Item Browser App (type DIB into eikon search bar) - this also gives values if you type in an instrument - so its easy to zero in on exactly what you want, I hope this can help.
