Historical Bid/Ask price and size at 10 levels

Hi,


I am using refinitiv data's get_history() function to retrieve historical bids/asks (1 minute frequency) along with sizes/depth. I only managed to get best bid/asks but not at level 2, 3, 4 and so on (I need upto 10 levels ideally).


Please see the code snippet below. Can someone help as to what should I add more to get additional details.

Can someone also explain that why certain fields under data item browser like A_LEVEL_1, B_LEVEL_1 do not work? I tried but they do not produce anything (comes up with NaN values).


Look forward to hearing on it.


Thanks,

The get_history function retrieves historical data from the historical-pricing Refinitiv Data Platform endpoint. The valid fields of minute interval data for ETH= are:

"headers": [
      {
        "name": "DATE_TIME",
        "type": "string"
      },
      {
        "name": "BID_HIGH_1",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "BID_LOW_1",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "OPEN_BID",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "BID",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "BID_NUMMOV",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "ASK_HIGH_1",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "ASK_LOW_1",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "OPEN_ASK",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "ASK",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "ASK_NUMMOV",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "MID_HIGH",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "MID_LOW",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "MID_OPEN",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      },
      {
        "name": "MID_PRICE",
        "type": "number",
        "decimalChar": "."
      }
    ],

It doesn't support the A_LEVEL_1, B_LEVEL_1 fields so it can't provide Historical Bid/Ask price and size at 10 levels.

Thanks for your response.


Where can I see which fields are valid for which instruments in future. that will help immesely.


Is there an alternate way to get desired info (if not from Refinitiv Data Platform endpoint).


Thanks

If you ignore the fields parameter, it will return all fields.

rd.get_history(universe="ETH=", interval="1min")
