Bloomberg Speaker & Training: Tracking Global Commodity Flows
Please join us for a training from Mike Lawn, a Power & Gas Specialist with Bloomberg. He will discuss how the Bloomberg terminal can:
- Locate the LNG (liquefied natural gas) boom markets and determine where LNG is originating
- Track global LNG flows
- Track booming LNG and crude exports from the Gulf
- Use global customs data to look at commodity flows ranging from soybean sales to China, Russian gas sales to Germany, and more
Note: WebEx is not offered for this series. Please plan to join us in-person.
The Bloomberg Terminal is a dedicated computer located in the Commerce Research Library, HCHB Room 1984. The Terminal has current and historical data on more than 5 million commodities, currencies, bonds, equities, and funds. It also provides company profiles, financial statements, trade and economic data, analysts' forecasts, mergers & acquisitions, foreign exchange, and in-depth news on a variety of global topics. Bloomberg Law and Bloomberg News are also included on the terminal.
