I am a regular Bloomberg user, and a beginner to Python. Before learning Python, I just had a basic question - can Python be used to download and work with Bloomberg data? (using BLPAPI SDKs etc).
Some more questions that come to mind are:
- Does it have all possible functionalities, or is there an obviously better language (like maybe C++) to learn if Bloomberg data usage is the main aim here?
- Can Python be the interface, say, to download and perform calculations on Bloomberg data, and output it in Excel in the way i want?
Thank you very much - all guidance much appreciated.
