I see that you can get BID_1, BID_2, etc. and ASK_1, ASK_2, etc. But there are no sizes/volumes that seem be associated with those fields. And while some RICs have a BEST_BID1 and accompanying BEST_BSIZ1, etc., those seem rare and usually are all 0 when I've tested.
@cherndon it largely depends on the asset that you are after and the exchange where it is traded. Usually, if you add a 0# before the RIC for an exchange traded instrument, it will show you the order book.
0# sign means that the requested entity is a series, or a chain. The chain contains a link to the market depth RIC. For example, 0#BARC.L is the order book for Barclays on LSE, it contains BARC.LO, that has the order book with the price and the size.
There is a separate call in JET for those. The following call will give you all RICs on a chain:
JET.Quotes.create() .chain("0#BARC.L") .formattedFields("X_RIC_NAME") .onNewRow(onNewRow) .onUpdate(onUpdate) .start();
Once you get the depth RIC, you can create a regular JET subscription with BEST_BIDx and BEST_BSIZx fields (where x is the field's number)
For more information, you can open the JET.js API Demo (Eikon Menu > Developer tab), select Quotes plugin and then Chains.
Market Depth (BID_1, BID_2, etc. and ASK_1, ASK_2, BEST_BSIZ1,BEST_ASIZ1,etc.) is available via Quotes method in TRKD API. Level 2 data requires permission from respective exchanges. The RICs for level 2 data is the normal Equity RIC prefixed with a "0#" for most exchanges.Below is a FAQ with details of level 2 data for US Exchanges.
