  1. Comparing historical data for commodity futures,

    LIM data vs. Bloomberg data,

    lots of differences...

    How do I figure out which one is better than the other one?

    How do their data quality compare in general?

    I know CSI is probably the cleanest? Unfortunately I don't have CSI ...

    Anyway, any thoughts on the data quality?

    For ease of downloading and programming, I tend to prefer Bloomberg data,

    how reliable is Bloomberg data for systematic trading purposes?

  2. hi, i come across to the same problems, have you figured out if futures data from bloomberg are reliable or not?
  3. I think Bloomberg data is more reliable. I suppose the brand name has something to do with this opinion of mine. The issue with Bloomberg is that it is so expensive.
