Eikon Excel data via RFA java api or other java api

Hello there,

May I have your insights on the below query?

We are looking to use TR functions [=TR(F4,"TR.FiOptionAdjustedSpread"), =TR(F4,"TR.FiMaturityStandardYield") etc] via Java API to get Reuters Yield Broker feed.

We are aware that TR.FiOptionAdjustedSpread and TR.FiMaturityStandardYield is not available via RFA Java API.

The question is what is the right java API to get the same data (as available via TR.FiOptionAdjustedSpread and TR.FiMaturityStandardYield excel functions)?

We need to get these data in our java application that deals with receiving market data from external sources like Reuters, Bloomberg etc and builds the different curves used in live pricing of trades.


Notes:

1. Sample RIC <US10YT=RR>

2. There are no FIDs for those above 2 items.

Xia: As my understanding, if there is no FID, then the data cannot be retrieved via any data feed, like RFA Java API, not sure whether there is any other Java API that is applicable.


Thanks & Regards,

Xia

Hi @XIA LIU

The Fields you mention are Eikon specific fields and therefore cannot be accessed by one of our real-time streaming Java APIs such as RFA or EMA.

However, the equivalent data may well be available on the Refinitiv Data Platform - which uses RESTful API for access to its data content.

And as you may be aware Java can be used to make REST API queries.

I am not a content specialist so you will need to explore the API Playground / and or contact our Content helpdesk to help identify a suitable RDP API that you can then query using its RESTful interface.
