Excel 365 stock data for DXY

New Contributor

Hi all

I've been struggling to find the correct codes to Query the US Dollar basket from Excel 365 stock types.

 

After reading this - https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/about-the-stocks-financial-data-sources-98a03e23-37f6-477... 

 

I have experimented with every version of DXY / DX-Y / US Dollar Index / USDX - that i can think of.. FWIW it took me ages to find the codes for VIX - "CBOE MKT VOLATILITY IDX"... Not sure why this is so poorly documented !

 

Anyway - I can find cross currency rates easily, but not so DXY so I would appreciate some help if anyone has solved it.

thanks

For those who follow later - the original data source is the Intercontinental Futures Exchange ( ICE ) and they seem to be pretty guarded with redistribution. Microsoft obtain their data from Refinitiv , but they don't seem to have ICE data.

More than 1 year past your post and we have still the very same problem.
Nothing seems to work, unless we go to one of the add-ins that can do that, but usually they charge a lot (either money or your data).
I wish someone at MSFT could help
