I'm trying to build a database with the adjusted close prices for all the components of the Stoxx 600, from 2000 to 2020. But I only get data no earlier than 2008, even for those stocks that existed before that year (i.e. volkswagen). I'm using this code and getting the result below.
adjusted_prices =  for stock in range(len(rics)): adjusted_prices.append(ek.get_timeseries(rics[stock], fields='CLOSE', start_date="2000-01-01", end_date="2020-12-30", interval="daily", corax="adjusted")
