  • First go to the search box which can be found at the top of the bloomberg screensIf you don’t know the ticker for the equity your looking for, just start typing in the name of the companyThe results that show up with be separated into funcitons and securitiesSince we are looking for an equity, look towards the securities sectionALTERNATIVELY you can also press the equity button on the keyboard after typing the name Select the correct security depending on which stock index(?) you would are interested inOR press the GO key  in bloomberg most things you do with your mouse you can also code in normally with a three letter short formHere as Tim previously described is the main menu of the equity from which you can find all the data that you can imagine looking forBe clicking on “description” (?) you can get a general overview of the company OR you can type in “DES” and press “GO”Now type in GPO to look at the price as well as historical data of the equityHere there are a lot of functions such as changing the time period, zooming in etc. However, not only can you look at one equity on its own, you can also compare it to other equitiesAs an example we took Pfizer, so you search for Pfizer as we did with Netflix then on the home page you press on “relative data” (?) for peer analysis of the industry of the companyYou can also narrow or widen the definition of that industry as well as the geographical scope of your comparisonsFinally, we also have an example of a currency that you may want to look upTo find a currency you need to type in that currency as well as another one with which you would like to compare it, in the search boxHere on the home page, you can select the intra-day trading prices which gives you come historical data
  • Al right,all said and done, let us see how can we use BBG to our best advantage.Depending on your requirement, you may have to kill you eyes looking at Bloomberg terminal or you may want to get that data in excel.To get data on excel,you can export the data from terminal,use a data wizard in BGG excel plugin or use formula.Two most frequently used formula are BDH and BDP.Let me quickly show you how powerful is this formula
  • Say you wanted to know the historical quarterly oil production of Suncor which is an oil and gas company, you will need to BDH and plug in the required attributes. If I click enter, lets see what we get
  • Boom there you go.I am sure you must be wondering that it was a hairy ugly formula. Relax. You don’t need to remember anything I told you.How. Lets see
  • This is the mother of all slides. So if you want to know something and have no idea how/where to find it on BBG,just press Green Help Key twice which opens a chat window and let BBG support team know.So anying you need - hisorical,realtime,forecast, just bug these guys and I am sure you too will begin to love BBG the way I do.
  • Thank you for those examples. As you can see, BB does an exceptional job making it easy for users to find financial information. Bloomberg has also done a remarkable job keeping users on their terminals throughout the day. Here are a couple tools that industry professionals use:IB: an instant messaging service that easily connects a user his/her contact list or any other Bloomberg users. This service can be used from any device, terminal or mobile, that a user is logged into.Traders no longer have to pick up the phone to execute trades, they can send a blast out to all sales people covering their account, get competitive prices quickly and can choose who they would like to deal with. Another interesting feature allows BB users to reserve a table at any restaurant in any major city in the world. Allows them to compare and reserve without leaving their seat or switch screens. Finally, odd headlines. Everyone has received those emails where your friend sends you the strangest story or perhaps you yourself are looking for a wildcard. BB has it. Typing NI odd gives you access to headlines such as: “Find examples.”So here were a few ways BB has evolved into much more than just a tool for users to access financial information. Now onto Sean for his wrap.
