Just curious if anyone has any insights on if, or when, a Bloomberg terminal might make sense as a tool. From a research point of view, I'm currently using very generic *retail* tools like OptionVue... and just using whatever trading front-end to keep a view on markets (IB, Rithmic's R|API, etc...). I have no experience with Bloomberg or other "professional" tools, so don't know what I'm missing out on by not having one around. What's the bare minimum startup cost? What capabilities, other than research, might a Bloomberg terminal offer me?
