Welcome to the Advanced Guide to Bloomberg. This guide is intended to provide an overview of some of the more advanced functions available on the Bloomberg system. In conjunction with the Beginner's Guide to Bloomberg previously published on Investopedia, this advanced guide should provide users with a good comprehension of how the Bloomberg terminal works, what some of its most common functions are, and how information can be accessed from the Bloomberg system. Because the system is so robust, these guides can only provide an overview of the functionality Bloomberg offers. However, once you begin using this system, you will realize that the best way to familiarize yourself with Bloomberg is through hands-on experimentation, and you can begin to focus upon those functions most useful to your investment approach.

SEE: The Bloomberg Terminal At A Glance Since there is a lot of commonality among the various functions and asset classes on Bloomberg, most users will get the maximum benefit from reading this entire guide. However, for those readers interested only in a particular asset class, the layout of this Advanced Guide is as follows: In Parts 2 and 3, we will examine some of the functions available for analyzing and trading the equity markets. Part 4 will then look at common bond market functions, while Part 5 will evaluate some of the ways in which Bloomberg can be used to analyze mutual funds and ETFs. Part 6 will then evaluate currency and commodity functions on the terminal, before Part 7 provides a conclusion and summary.

Remember, if you still have questions after reading this guide, Bloomberg's help desk can be a valuable source of information as you begin using the system.
