How to use a Bloomberg Terminal:
The Bloomberg Professional service integrates data, news, analytics, multimedia reports, research, and trading capabilities into a single platform. The system's technology provides a reliable, secure, state-of-the-art network to assure fast, free-flowing access to information via a Bloomberg Terminal.
The Bloomberg Terminal offers quick access to important financial information and news, both of which are updated 24 hours a day. The service includes access to data from international equity markets, money markets, currency markets, municipal and corporate bond markets, and commodity markets. The Terminal is used to navigate the Bloomberg services more efficiently by having instant access to securities data, real-time pricing, historical pricing, news and research, as well as recorded interviews, analytics, and a 'Portfolio System' which allows the user to analyze and price customized portfolios.
