I am building a script to dump all securities to a file, but I can't determine how to get the "Current Price" field that is visible in the "Currency/Security History" dialog. Can you point me in the right direction?

The code I have so far is (see attachment for proper formatting):

import json

def dump_symbol_attributes(filename): output = []

for currency in currencies:
    out_dict = {}
    keys = currency.getParameterKeys()
    for key in keys:
        out_dict[key] =  currency.getParameter(key)
    if "ticker" in out_dict.keys(): #keep only securities
        output += [out_dict]
    print out_dict

with open(filename, "w") as file:

return output

if name == "main": filename = "location where output file is saved" print dump_symbol_attributes(filename)

    Sorry I truncated the code block and file. The correct file is attached

    The Current Price value appears to be represented by the rate field in the output file (which can also be accessed by getRawRate()).

    The Current Price can be calculated by:

    Current_Price = 100 / rate

    I attached my final code for reference.

    I was a little premature on my last post. If the security currency is different from the base currency, the method suggested above is invalid.

    So my original question remains, how do a get the displayed Current Price in the currency of the security?

    Thank you
