Bloomberg provides pre-trade analysis tools to help you manage asset-specific exposures and support decision making. Our applications help you generate and test ideas based on relationships in underlying intraday and historical market data such as dividends, curves, spreads and volatilities.

STRUCTURING AND PRICING

Feed decisions with our deep intraday input data, powered by dealer-quality models such as the Stochastic-Local Volatility Model.

Data flows seamlessly into our analytics and calculators—and into your spreadsheets and other applications. Load deals and integrate them with our analytics, and feed other systems with deal information saved through Bloomberg. Describe and distribute complex transaction details via our market-standard communication system. Our execution platform addresses all aspects of your trading workflow, spanning every asset class to help you stage, monitor, execute and allocate derivatives trades.
