Bloomberg is a specialist database platform which provides access to financial data such as equities, commodities, foreign exchange and price indices.

Bloomberg is not available in the Library, but is available in the McKenzie Trading Room in the Management School. There is no need to book a study space. Access to the room is Monday to Friday 9:00 - 17:00 through the year and with late opening on Monday and Wednesday till 21:00 term-time only.

Bloomberg requires customers to set up their own username ("Bloomberg Registration" guidance). It is necessary to have a mobile phone with you when using Bloomberg for the first time as details have to be provided to them, in person, at the time of registering.

Once you are a registered customer you can sign up for the free, certified “Bloomberg Market Concepts” course ("Bloomberg Market Concepts" guidance)
