Interpreting a Bloomberg financial market search request and understanding how to teach Eventus for US market event studies

Interpreting a Bloomberg financial market search request

  • What language is being used in the request, what are the names of the equities, currencies and indices? When is there a difference between common names and formal names?
  • How can we find the correct tickers for each of these series?
  • Which function should we use? How do we use Line Chart (GP) effectively and efficiently? (Choosing dates/frequency, removing unwanted series, exporting the image by copying to the clipboard.)
  • Why might these charts be useful, what will they allow the students to do, what research questions might they ask?
