I want to study and i have recently downloaded the User documentation guide for different Refinitiv services like Data Scope Select, Data Scope Select Plus and Tick History. I have also downloaded the Content guide for the above Refinitiv services.
But i want to know exactly what is difference between this services. Is there any documentation or help provided in the Refinitiv for understanding ? The below fields used in the Content guide exist in all the above the services.
Currently I have below fields for Market Making Fonds/ETF - ATF - Equities FFM and i want to find later appropriate Refinitiv REST API sevice which i can use in my Java implementation to fetch the result for the below fields :
TimestampEndFRA (Unique0) TimestampEndUTC (Unique0) RIC ISIN MIC CURRENCY Open High Low Close Nobs_Ticks Nobs_Trades Turnover Volume BidQty1 Bid1 BidQty2 BidAvailability AskAvailability AskQty1 AskQty2
This forum is most helpful on Refinitiv API usage, and not the best place to advise on what is the right product to provide the specific content that your organization require. Refinitiv content experts would have the expertise to help and your organization's account manager would be able to liaise with the appropriate content group(s) within Refinitiv on your behalf, would be able to help you best on this, by fully evaluating your requirement and helping to make sure of the right product recommendation.
My feel, as you mention intraday content on funds, and not history over the years, Datascope Select may cover your requirement better, and as you are looking for HTTP REST request, rather then FTP, it will not be Datascope Select Plus. Realtime streaming pricing service, such as Refinitiv Real Time Optimized can perhaps be of interest, it's a real time streaming service. I have also pinged your Refinitiv account manager so that they are aware of the interest.
I am a developer, so my viewpoint is that of a developer.
The difference between the products is in the types of content/information that is made available via the product.
To put it very briefly, Refinitiv Tick History is comprised of historical content, i.e. if you are looking for history of prices, in depth, including every tick, that would be Tick History product, while Datascope Select is more reference data and other information product.
At more detailed level "Refinitiv Tick History provides access to historical high frequency timestamped data across all global asset classes since 1996" and "DataScope Select (DSS) offers a comprehensive data model and supports a variety of asset classes, including equities, derivatives, funds, loans, money/foreign exchange, CDS/IRS and OTC equity options. Additional supported data sets include corporate actions, reference data, entity data, evaluated pricing, news, estimates, analytics and technical indicators"
There is, however, some overlap, some of the content is available from either product.
Both products include extensive search capability as well as extraction request capability.
In terms of programmatic access, both products offer HTTP REST request/response interface that is easily integrated via Java.
If you are looking for a specific content, I would suggest contacting your organization's Refinitiv account manager, to discuss your organization's specific requirements in detail. They would be able to help with appropriate product selection and for in-depth content coverage, they may bring into discussion a Refinitiv content expert for that specific content set, to make sure your organization's requirements are best covered.
Hope this information helps
