Availability

There are three "Open Bloomberg" terminals at Kellogg. Two of them are located in the Andersen computer labs (one in the main lab, the second in the Extension lab). The third one is accessible by faculty and doctoral students.

Description

Bloomberg Professional is a continuous data feed service that includes real-time (with a 20 minute delay), historical and descriptive data, analytics and news on a number of markets and securities.

The database includes information from all global regions, including exchange-traded and "over-the-counter" markets. Data includes complete descriptive information, volume, and output from Bloomberg analytics such as beta, moving averages, money flows, volatilities, option sensitivity, deliverablity, and others. Fundamental data contains earnings, balance sheets, cash flow and debt/equity analysis, rations, and public filings.

The Bloomberg Professional is a suite of products. Due to licensing restrictions from the vendor, "Open Bloomberg" terminals only allow users to view and print information; it also allows saving screens (to GIF files).
