Difference of Futures

Hi Team,


We're trying to find a difference between next example: For future contract 'MAL' we have a lot of Rics returned and in particular what's the differences between Rics like MALD29U1 , MALD29V1 and Rics MALU24 , MALV25 ? Is capital D means something? Thanks

I checked and found that the capital D letter should indicate a daily periodicity.

        {
            "IdentifierType": "ChainRIC",
            "Identifier": "0#MAL-FMOI",
            "RIC": "MALD29V1",
            "Periodicity": "D"
        },
        {
            "IdentifierType": "ChainRIC",
            "Identifier": "0#MAL-FMOI",
            "RIC": "MALD29U1",
            "Periodicity": "D"
        },

MALU24 and MALV25 are monthly periodicities.

        {
            "IdentifierType": "ChainRIC",
            "Identifier": "0#MAL-FMOI",
            "RIC": "MALU24",
            "Periodicity": "M"
        },
        {
            "IdentifierType": "Ric",
            "Identifier": "MALV25",
            "RIC": "MALV25",
            "Periodicity": "M"
        }

However, please contact the Refinitiv DataScope Select support team directly via MyRefinitiv to confirm it.

Hi, Thanks for response and it looks reasonable. Can you please also advise how you checked this as Identifier you have is 0#MAL-FMOI . And I can't search it in DataScope Select site with such variation as there is not present ChainRic in dropdown? Thanks

  1. "IdentifierType": "ChainRIC",
  2. "Identifier": "0#MAL-FMOI",

You can use this chain search to search for chain RICs.
