@david.colas

The only way I can think of determining when a future contract began trading is by retrieving the earliest date for which the price history for the RIC is available.

@david.colas I take it you mean first available expiry - in which case this should be what you want:

df,err= ek.get_data('GCc1',['EXPIR_DATE'])
df

Is this what you are looking for?

Hi jason.ramchandani , thank you for your response. No, I mean the first trading date of the continuous future contract.
