Welcome to the Beginner's Guide to Bloomberg. This portion of the guide is aimed at new Bloomberg users, and will provide an overview of how to use a Bloomberg terminal. If you are a more experienced user, or if after reading this guide you want to go into more detail on Bloomberg's capabilities, please be on the lookout for the Advanced Guide to Bloomberg which will soon follow. (For more, see Day Trading Strategies For Beginners.) In this Basic Guide, we will examine how to sign up for, install and access Bloomberg. We will then go on to covering basic navigation on the Bloomberg system. Navigating Bloomberg is somewhat unique in that the system uses a special keyboard with some keys that are different from those found on a "normal" keyboard. Therefore, the navigation section of this guide will be important to newcomers.

After gaining a working knowledge of these basics, in chapter four we will then move on to discuss some of the market and news monitor functions that are available on Bloomberg. Chapter five will focus on the basics of analyzing securities on Bloomberg. Advanced functionality in this area will be covered in the Advanced Guide; in this Basic Guide we will focus more closely on the types of analysis that Bloomberg allows users to perform. Finally, chapter six will provide some tips and tricks for navigating Bloomberg and getting the maximum possible benefit from this remarkable machine, while chapter 7 will provide a summary and conclusion.
