Bloomberg

Bloomberg contains the following data:

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

This database can be accessed in the "Bibliothek für Betriebswirtschaft" in Plattenstrasse 14. Data can be loaded with a plug-in for Microsoft Excel or viewed via the Bloomberg mask.

Please note that Bloomberg has a monthly limit for downloading data to Excel. Once a terminal reaches the limit, no more data can be downloaded for the rest of the month.

Access is available for students of the University of Zurich only.

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.
