Access basic data for futures contracts traded on today

I'd like to ask how to write the code to get all futures contracts (basic info such as: price / settle date etc.. ) traded on the current day(between future contract list date and de-list date) through Python EIKON API.


Hope to get some feedback or suggestion as soon as we can.

Hi @yu.yang

I would suggest you refer to some of the different threads within this forum for some guidance. For example, this thread and this thread may not be exactly what you are looking for but will give you an idea how to pull data you need. I would also suggest you also include an example of the instrument code (RIC) or company you would like to retrieve. This will help in providing a more concrete example.
