Which stock exchanges are displayed with real-time quotes?
We offer three stock exchanges with real-time quotes: SIX Swiss Exchange, SIX Swiss Exchange Blue Chip, and Scoach.
What is an RIC?
RIC is the abbreviation for Reuters Identification Code. This code, specific to Reuters, is generally composed of a company identifier code and a stock exchange code, separated by a point. E.g.: CSGN.VX is the RIC for Credit Suisse shares traded on the SWX Europe Limited exchange. In an index, the RIC always starts with a decimal point, followed by an abbreviation. E.g.: ".SSMI" is the RIC for the SMI.
What is the ISIN?
ISIN is the abbreviation for International Security Identification Number. This alphanumeric code is used to identify a financial instrument worldwide.
What is the ticker?
The ticker is a code used on a stock exchange to identify a financial instrument. Each stock exchange has its own ticker for each financial instrument.
What is the "Swiss Security Number"?
As with the ISIN, this is the security number that is used in Switzerland to identify a financial instrument.
Why can I not obtain quotes for all stock exchanges?
Certain stock exchanges restrict access to quoted prices by requiring separate contracts for such a service. To provide quotes from these exchanges would be expensive and complicated. We therefore prefer to focus on the most used stock exchanges. Further information may be requested from your client advisor.
