Beginner's Guide To The Bloomberg Terminal: Economics

In addition to monitoring market indices and news headlines, the Bloomberg terminal can also be used to monitor economic forecasts and releases. By typing <ECO> <GO> you can access the main economics page. This page gives a listing of all upcoming economic data releases, as well as consensus forecasts of what economists at major banks and brokerages are predicting those numbers will be. Upon release, the ECO screen also shows the actual number, as well as any revision to the previous month's report. For those interested in overseas markets, there is an ECO page for most major economies. By using the dropdown menus for "Region" and "Country" you can access economic forecasts and data from Europe, China, and elsewhere, in addition to the United States. The screenshot below displays a basic ECO screen with data for the United States. (For related reading, see Economics Basics.)
