Bloomberg

Bloomberg is a key source for current and historical pricing on equities, fixed income securities, foreign exchange and commodities, as well as indicative and fundamental data, customized analytics and business news. Bloomberg also provides company profiles and financial statements, analysts’ forecasts, worldwide financial market news, and multimedia interviews and presentations by key players in business and finance.
