Python package for retrieving data.

Project description

The Refinitiv Data Plaform Library for Python provides a set of ease-of-use functions and classes that gives your applications a uniform access to the breath and depth of financial data and services available on the Refinitiv Data Platform.

Thanks to this library the same Python code can be used to retrieve data whatever the access point your application uses to connect to the Refinitiv Data Platform (either via a direct connection, via Eikon, via the Refinitiv Workspace or even via a deployed Enterprise Platform).

The library provides several abstraction layers enabling different programming styles and technics suitable for all developers from Financial Coders to Seasoned Developers (synchronous function calls, async/await, event driven).

Some examples

Import the Refinitiv Data Platform Library

import refinitiv.dataplatform as rdp

Chose your platform access point...

...either directly to the Refinitiv Data Platform...

rdp.open_platform_session(
    '8e9bxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx1b035d', 
    rdp.GrantPassword(
        'my_login', 
        'my_password'
    )
)

...or via Eikon/Refinitiv Workspace...

rdp.open_desktop_session('8e9bxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx1b035d')

...or via a Deployed Platform

rdp.open_deployed_platform_session(
    '8e9bxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx1b035d',
    'my_deployed_platform_ip',
    'my_dacs_user_name'
)

Real-time Pricing - Get Snapshots

rdp.get_snapshot(
    universe = ['GBP=','JPY='], 
    fields   = ['BID','ASK']
)
Instruments BID ASK
0 GBP= 1.3211 1.3212
1 JPY= 108.6100 108.6200

Real-time Pricing - Get Streaming Data

streaming_prices = rdp.StreamingPrices(
    instruments = ['EUR=', 'GBP=', 'JPY=', 'CAD='], 
    fields = ['DSPLY_NAME', 'BID', 'ASK'],
    on_update = lambda streaming_price, instrument_name, fields : 
        print("Update received for {}: {}".format(instrument_name, fields))
)

streaming_prices.open()

Output:

<StreamState.Open: 3>
