We currently refer to OFF_CLOSE field to identify the official closing price once the market close.
However, for Options and Futures, we have noticed that the OFF_CLOSE field is populated even when the markets are open and trading. Once the markets close, the OFF_CLOSE remains same as populated and the last traded price is also different from the OFF_CLOSE price.
Example: Euro stoxx - RIC Code - STXEZ1
Could you please help us understand this pattern of OFF_CLOSE field for this security.
I also noticed another field SETTLE with the same price as OFF_CLOSE.
What does the SETTLE field indicate?
