Alternative Codes - FRED


If you have the FRED database enabled on your account you can access Russell indices (1000, 2000, 3000, etc) using their data base.



Alternative Codes - ETFs


While we do not have any alternative options for the FTSE Indices group at this stage, we do have alternatives for some of the Russell Indices which may be suitable for your needs. There are several ETFs available in the US Equities group which closely follow the underlying indices which could be used as an alternative.

Note that you will require access to the US Equities data on your account. You can log in to your account page to adjust your data subscription.

The ETF values are around 1/10th of the underlying index, however the movements, shape and cycle pattern of the charts are a close match.

If your charts contain no static indicators (such as Trend Lines, etc) you can change the charts code to the ETF. To change a chart of the index to the ETF simply click on the chart background and type the equivalent ETF symbol, as per above. Here's an example of changing the Russell 2000 Growth from RUO to IWO, and the RIC tool from RUT to IWM:



NOTE: For any chart containing static tools that are manually applied to the chart (eg trend lines, horizontal lines, Fibonacci Retracements) they will not be adjusted to the different ETF values so will need to be deleted and reapplied to the new chart.
