Some of our readers may already be familiar with Bloomberg’s News service, available via their website. But did you know that News is also available on Bloomberg terminals? Because it mainly relates to what is happening in the world’s financial markets, there is lots to be found on trading between companies, on mergers and acquisitions and the economy in general. Whereas online there is no historical archive of news items, the Bloomberg terminal provides access to both current and historical news stories.
To access News, you need to log into Bloomberg. If you haven’t already, you’ll need to create an account first. If you are new to Bloomberg, you can check out our Bloomberg basics blog post.
