@Arpit Jain

Eikon Data APIs can only retrieve news headlines from Newswire sources. YICCHI is a Web News source, which is not available through Eikon Data APIs.

Hello @Arpit Jain

I have checked with the Eikon/Workspace News Monitor app and I cannot find any news for the YICCHI (Yicai) source.

I suggest you contact the Refinitiv Helpdesk team via my.refinitiv.com website to help you confirm if your interested News Source is available in Eikon/Workspace or not.

For more detail regarding the New Source in Eikon Data API, please check the old threads:
