Bloomberg allows access to several real time databases. The following data is only a small fraction of what sort of data Bloomberg offers:

  • Stock prices
  • Accounting data
  • Bond prices
  • Indices
  • Commodities
  • Option prices
  • Interest rates
  • Exchange rates
  • Macroeconomic data

The access to Bloomberg is restricted to two terminals on the upper floor of the "Bibliothek für Betriebswirtschaft". The data can be loaded with the Bloomberg program or with a plug-in for Microsoft Excel.

Access to the Bloomberg database is available for students of the University of Zurich only.

Please note that certain data cannot be loaded, because there is not a subscription for all da-tabases.

Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to offer an introduction in the use of Bloomberg. However, Bloomberg offers help over a chat. With a double click on the help button (on the key-board) the chat can be activated.
