For EOD data IEX source has nominal and adjusted price fields. To use adjusted fields use IEXa as data source moniker.

Chinese stocks are available under IEX moniker, and are available for EOD interval only, for example IEX:601988.

To access fundamental data for an IEX ticker append #<fundamental_field>, for example IEX:AAPL#netinc. This feature is working for EOD data only.
