Bloomberg Collection and Processing

Has anyone dealt with Bloomberg data? Typically, I have not worried about it. However, it is becoming more requested as of late and I've no idea where to start. Ideally, it would involve collection and then parsing for Relativity review. Any ideas on where to start would be helpful!

I've collected Bloomberg Chats recently. The client company used a message archiving service which saved all of the chats. They created an admin account for my team and I exported the Chats in PST format. You might want to start with asking the client's IT admin about their Bloomberg configuration.

@badams   OK, I'll ask the badams,  what are you talking about?

Never heard of this before.  Please elaborate.

From what I understand, Instant Bloomberg is a feature of Bloomberg's financial services. Team members/financial partners can chat and collaborate on deals easily by sharing charts and figures.

Hi, we deal with Bloomberg quite often and the way we tend to do is ask the client or whoever administers their Bloomberg account to contact Bloomberg and ask for access to Bloomberg Vault. Once they have access, you/they can run searches and export the results in a number of different ways - XML, PST and maybe a few others. Bloomberg will even give a training session on how to use Bloomberg Vault if they ask nicely... Once exported you can process it for review. One thing to bear in mind is I'm not sure how much processing is needed to get it in to a state that's easily viewable in Relativity. I know our team has a few scripts to tidy it up a bit but I'm not sure how well the data will parse without doing anything to it first. Hope this helps.
