Get price data for particular companies

Recommended Posts

You could do this as follows:

1) Perform a SearchWithTags command using the TagId parameter as 103. This is the ID for GB Equities.

For example:

doGet('/market/searchwithtags?Query=&tagid=103');

You will get back a list of markets and their market IDs.

2) Make a note of the market IDs for the FTSE 100 companies you are interested in.

3) You can now get the price data for the market IDs you noted in step 2, in exactly the same way as for the FX currency pair GBP/AUD.

Not all companies came back, for example small cap companies like Avanti (AVN). Is price data not held on small caps or is there another way to get them?

@danny Price data is held on small caps. You can try the following solutions based on your circumstances:

1) If there are only a few markets you are looking for, use the SearchWithTags query for each market to find the market IDs. You can then get the prices for the markets as usual.

2) Try tag ID 102 in your SearchWithTags query. This is the Equities market tag containing a larger selection of equities markets. Don’t forget to increase the maxResults parameter so you can see all the results.

3) You can contact Client Management and have them request the Equities trading desk add your list of GB equities to the “Equities UK” market tag.
