Building a Real-time Quote widget
This article follows on from the Webinar session Introduction to MiFID II for Developers, with some detail on the coding aspects of handling (or avoiding) the high precision time, not covered in the Webinar and includes some information based on questions arising after the event.
Adfin Analytics are only available as part of Eikon Excel add-in and as a COM library. There’s no native Python implementation of Adfin Analytics. This article explains how to use AdfinX Analytics in Python and provides a code sample.
ISIN to RIC conversion with the TRTH (Thomson Reuters Tick History) REST API.
This article explains how to improve TRTH data downloads performance.
ISIN to RIC conversion with the DSS (DataScope Select) REST API.
The article provides a brief introduction to DataScope Select and its RESTful API.
After making a request for historical data using TRTH, once the data has been extracted and is ready you can download and save the resulting compressed data file to your local hard disk. In this article, I investigate how to download TRTH compressed data files, and how to optimize the download time.

How to use the Tick History REST API to expand a Chain RIC in Python
This article demonstrates how to use the Tick History REST API to request Time and Sales data using python.
This article is intended as a developer supplement to Elektron Connect Installation Guide.
With over 50 million instruments carried by our realtime Elektron feed - answering that question would be overwhelming. This article shows you how to make Criteria Based Requests (CBR) aka Broadcast Data Stream (BDS) - to the Elektron Edge Device - which return a list of RICS matching a set specified criteria.
This article discusses the OMM to FIX Gateway capability for existing TREP clients to transmit pre-trade FIX messages to registered Approved Publication Arrangements (APA) to satisfy MIFID II regulatory requirements.
MiFID II - Extending the precision of timestamps supported on Elektron Real Time.
This article examines the Thomson Reuters Machine Readable News offering, discussing its features, the most common use cases and provides specific details of implementation from the standpoint of an application developer.
The following article provides developers a method to use TRTH REST API to retrieve page-based data which mainly used for the Speed Guides or including other page RICs.
This article explains how to develop RFA Java application to monitor the health of services. The general techniques could be applied to TREP real-time streaming APIs e.g. RFA.NET/C+, ETA C+/Java.
For some instruments, suffix of RIC indicates the exchange where it is traded, e.g. HSBA.L (.L = LSE - London Stock Exchange), HBC.N (.N = NYSE - New York Stock Exchange). However, there are some instruments without this suffix. How can an app know on which exchange they are listed?
This article demonstrates how we can use the DataScope Select .NET SDK to extract all associated securities for a list of legal entities.
This article describes how downstream applications discover the health of Elektron Real Time Infrastructure, through the consumption of SPS (Service Provider Status) messages provided by the Elektron Real Time CHE (Collection Head End).
In this article we present a Quote Assist App built using App Studio HTML 5 SDK. We will demonstrate how to use JET toolkit to achieve seamless integration with Thomson Reuters Eikon.
Using the power of Thomson Reuters Intelligent Tagging (TRIT) to capture rich, semantic metadata, researchers and analysts can now easily take advantage of these capabilities when authoring and sending emails within Outlook.
Elektron Message API is designed as an ease of use API which provides one of the easiest entry points into consuming and publishing real-time data. How to configure it?
This article explains how to request particular fields of an item via RFA. The general techniques could be applied to any of real-time streaming APIs i.e. ETA C+/Java, EMA C++/Java.
Publishing content from internal databases to Thomson Reuters Enterprise Platform (TREP)
Using FID 259 to identify your market data records
The purpose of this article is to introduce the Interactive Source Blending feature available in TREP 3.0 or above. It also demonstrates how to setup this feature and test it with EMA C++ examples.
This article demonstrates how a user can use Eikon Python API to quickly prototype and plot custom analytics. The example shown here is one of the many use cases, that Quants/Analysts can employ to analyze financial data.
