Bloomberg Terminal helps us retrieve, analyze and store real-time and historic market data including prices, statistics, estimates, analysis, industry news, charts and graphs. We can glaze through what is happening in the global financial markets within a fraction of a second. Bloomberg Terminal at LBSIM is a resourceful addition helping students carry out a project and online trading. Bloomberg Market Concept is an e-learning course module certification designed to provide hands-on experience of using the terminal function and financial markets. As a beginner, this course helped me familiarize with the terminal, frequently used commands and thus find relevant information in no time.
It is an integral part of my live-industry project, summer internship as well as final year project. The financial data of public companies from the income statement and balance sheets to ratios, historical data and company news available on the terminal has helped me to carry out equity research for my live project. Moreover, industry news, sectoral reports and analyst recommendations were an essential part of my summer internship project on sectoral analysis. I have leveraged the services provided by this innovative technology to conduct Mergers and Acquisition transaction analysis, simulations, financial valuation, business research and data analytics.
