trade bid and ask

Help with understanding.

There are two examples.

I need to understand trade by ask or bid

I want to count VOL ACCUMULATED of ASK trade and VOL ACCUMULATED of BID trade. How do I correctly identify FID 178 (this is bid or ask)?

the support service usually gives the FID dictionary, but I don't understand how it is correct to identify ask_trade and bid_trade to understand which quantity in the FID 32 is ask_trade and which quantity is bid_trade

Hello @s61670,

From my understanding of the below information in RDMFieldDictionary:

TRDVOL_1   "TRADE VOL"            178  TRDVOL_2    INTEGER            15  REAL64           7
!
! Number of shares, lots or contracts  traded in the most recent transaction, the 
! transaction price reported in TRDPRC_1.
!

TRDVOL_1, fid 178 reflects neither BID nor ASK. It reflects the transaction price TRDPRC_1

Same is true for

ACVOL_1    "VOL ACCUMULATED"       32  NULL        INTEGER            15  REAL64           7
!
! Accumulated number of shares, lots or contracts traded according to the market 
! convention

Accumulated number of shares TRADED, rather then quoted,
