what would be the best way to build a terminal equal to the bloomberg terminal as far as data feed?
Warren Zevon. (lawyers, guns, and money)
if you have ever seen a terminal and the amount of data that they have, you'd be hard pressed to ever compete with bloomberg on a total data scale.
however if you focus on a single type of product or product group you may be able to do something similar.
Does reuters even come close?
the interface on the bloomberg machines look so shitty. I know its superfacial but for the money i would want something nice to look at atleast.
agreed the interface is miserable. i haven't used reuters so I'm not really sure.
Bloomberg is $1700 per month.
The absolute BEST.
Merrill Lynch is bought now. Forget it. If you know, Bloomberg was developed in ML initially. Fortran etc.
Have you got a major market maker and 10 years to spend?
If not, subscribe...
Funny post - the interface is miserable, but I've never used it so I can't really say now that I think about it...
impossible... the value of a bbg isn't only in the feeds; up until recently, the proprietery models were the models for any kind of FI product. Course they keep these to themselves. If Reuters can't keep up, then doubful anyone else can - though I spoke to a reuters guy recently and he said they were bringing out a new product that kickes ass, so we'll have to wait and see.
if you're looking for a figure though, I'd say circa $20mm+ before you sell any.
What do you mean by FI models? you lost me when you said it wasn't just the feed. What does the "model" offer?
Separate names with a comma.
