Bloomberg spying on traders via terminals

This story has been everywhere:

Wall Street: How Much Does Bloomberg Know?

I can't imagine this ending well for Bloomberg. But who is the alternative?

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
Help using the forum? Watch this video to learn general tips on using the site.

There isn't an alternative.

The reason they can charge so much is the amount of information they store. You can find out tons of stuff quickly. Say you hear of an oil tanker exploding in a port, you can find out what ships were there, and who owned them and try to guess whose stock to short.

They even keep track of how many people looked up your profile in a day and publish a list of the hottest profiles.

Math. A gateway drug to reality.

That's crazy. I had a terminal when I worked with a few Interbank Dealers... Most traders and brokers I knew probably never gave any thought to spying...

Although this looks bad for Bloomberg, there really isn't anything else available out there. They have a major monopoly on the market. Reuters Eikon is trying to change that though.

The market makers mostly just use the chat function for socailizing actually. The big trades and price discovery is all done on direct phone lines, in fact they are hyper-concerned about privacy, that's why they use the IDB's in the first place. As for buy side firms, not sure how much sensitive information would be transmitted on bloomberg chat, I rekon not that much....
