Hi folks,

Electronic Trading is completely new to me. Last week I visited a Stock Brokerage company seeing a Bloomberg Terminal
http://www.bloomberg.com/
and playing around with it.

As curiosity driven later I used a desktop Linux Box browsing its website.
I can also retrieving information similar to the function of a Bloomberg Terminal.

What will be the advantage in subscribing a Bloomberg Terminal apart from technical service and the shortcut keys provided by its keyboard. Are there similar software on Open Source.

B.R.
