Bloomberg Guide


Getting Started

This is a general guide on Bloomberg basic features and functions.


Bloomberg provides current and historical financial information on equities, stock market indices, commodities, fixed-income securities, currencies, and futures for both international and domestic markets.  It also provides company profiles and financial statements, analysts'  forecasts, and news on worldwide financial markets. Boston College has an academic subscription and access is only available on campus for the current Boston College Community.  

There are two Bloomberg terminals on the BC campus:
