The digital edition will live on, and online content will remain free to all audiences. In addition, the October-launched show “Bloomberg Pursuits” will continue to air on Bloomberg TV, and luxury reports will continue on Bloomberg Radio. No personnel changes are expected at this time.
Bloomberg Pursuits is folding its print product. The luxury magazine, which is distributed exclusively to Bloomberg Terminal subscribers, will cease print publication after its current December issue.
Bloomberg provides different types of licenses for different use cases (terminal, b-pipe, sapi, data license). If you have a terminal, the daily limit is 600K requests: # requests = # tickers x # fields x # (bdp,bdh,bds) formulas (i.e. bdh('AAPL US Equity','px_last','1/1/2000','1/1/2016' is one request). If you hit your daily or monthly limit, then your api will be blocked - if you try to retrieve more data you will get an error that you reached your limit. Bloomberg allows you to reset your limit once or twice per month. If you consistently hit your limit your sales rep will contact you trying to sell you a pay-per-use license. So, as long as you use terminal there is no way to be overcharged. Now, if you have sapi or another license which is pay-per-use it is possible to exceed original limits (bloomberg will not block you for retrieving more data) and be charged later for it.
3. You should now be at the Bloomberg screen titled “Training Videos.” Follow the Bloomberg steps provided above or on your terminal screen in order to complete the training program.
You should double check this with your Bloomberg rep, but here's the explanation I received from them:The limits are per request per ticker, so a single BDP request for one data point is the same as a BDH request downloading 5y of data. i.e. if you want lots of data with matching dates, never use a date/ticker grid with n*m BDH requests - that will definitely hit your limits.I've been downloading lots of bbg data while keeping this in mind and never ran into any problems, including 1min data for hundreds of tickers at a time.
My company has Bloomberg terminal, but I've heard I shouldn't import any batch of data into Excel using BLP plugin, because it is pricey. They told me that some time ago somebody did this and they paid $ 200 000 invoice. I can only check prices one by one using BBG app. Is this really true?
