Here are some pointers. First of all: What you list as a Reuters RIC, RSF.ANY.AAPL.OQ, is not really a RIC, only the AAPL.OQ is. The initial part is some stuff which is essentially site specific and tells me that you are working on a site that has a legacy RTIC infrastructure (some Reuters/TIBCO technology which is quite old these days and for all ...
Bloomberg equity codes are usually quite easy to derive if you know the ticker (though you may have to replace dashes/spaces/slashes for preferred and multi-class shares). This is just for equities though and this is definitely not the case for futures. RICs are a different story. In the US, you need to know on what exchange the ticker is listed to get the ...
Yes, Thomson Reuters RIC codes are case-sensitive. I believe the confusion comes from the fact that some frontends will 'assist' you if you misspell and automatically convert. That's just a trick. This doesn't change the fact that at the API level it is case-sensitive. In other words: if you are doing your own application you should definitely think of RIC ...
Macrobond, a swedish company might be something to consider. http://www.macrobond.com/
I will be adding here some resources that I found during the research, hopefully it will turn useful for others: http://www.linkedin.com/groups/master-symbol-database-most-cost-98173.S.51776671 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reuters_Instrument_Code
CME group has free Swap curves. It also seems that they have quotes on the product feature page. Hope this works for you, -if it does, maybe you can comment about the costs when you find out. Thanks.
Reuters is making a huge push with their Eikon terminals. I think their prices are under NDA but you can often get one at a big discount to the $1700/month the Bloomberg charges and they are starting to close the feature gap. You'll still need to pay the market data fees if you want real time quotes, but those fees can often be in the low 100/month range ...
If you're on the buy-side, you could also ask whether any of your counter parties may have what you need. For example, when it comes to fixed income data, Barclays Live and Morgan Markets (free to clients) may very well be better.
Bloomberg provides unique identifiers, I assume Reuters does the same thing. It might be a good idea to use those, or at least track them. Presumably you have pricing data on each of these? You could always check a few close prices against each other to check if you have matched the strings correctly.
I think your request is too broad. ITUB, for example is an Italian company and has ADRs traded in several stock exchanges. Hence, if you do search in Eikon, you find multiple tickers for it. And I failed to find critea, which could yield single return value for each tickers you supplied. I used request: =RSearch("Equity", "TickerSymbol:" & B3 & ...
