Bloomberg tickers

February 8, 2007

Noel has had to confront the irrationality of Bloomberg ticker symbols. Noel: I feel your pain – you should see what they’ve done with the vanilla IR swap tickers. I believe the ticker symbols are allocated by a group in NY. I suspect they’re operating some fiendish scheme to maximise congnitive dissonance in developers at contributing dealers. I also suspect that Bloomberg tickers may make a good seed for a pseudo random number generator 😉  This is one area where Reuters does it better.
