Bloomberg Terminal


Although a bit last month, Matt Turck offers an interesting read on the Bloomberg Terminal.  A number of software packages are called out throughout the article, coupled with this possible key quote:

A data producer like [PsychSignal] publishes its social media sentiment index on [Quandl]. A user exports that data from Quandl to a high-end visualization service like [Plotly] or [DataHero]; extracts subtle insights using an analytics tool like [BigML]; backtests an investment strategy using [Quantopian], and then actually trades on that data using Quantopian again.

Interesting items mentioned:

  • Factset
  • SumZero – Buy side hedge fund community
  • Quantopian – Platform to allow quants share strategies and algos
  • ThinkNum – Collaborate on investment research with users from around the world.
  • Estimize
  • Premise
  • Quandl – financial search engine
  • Dataminr
  • Kensho
  • Domino – Easily run R, Python, and Matlab code in the cloud.  Automatic version control and collaboration for data, code, and results.
