I think it is about US$1600 per month.

You should be able to trial it.

Why don't you just call Bloomberg and ask them?

I think the cost is negotiable (within reason). I spoke to a guy from Bloomberg a few months back. He seemed eager to help and even offered to visit me.

Unfortunately, my trading setup is such that I didn't feel I would cover the costs by the extra 'edge' Bloomberg would offer me.

Trading simulator

Hi guys, I am pretty new here,
I reach the last stage of an interview for an USA Bank for Fx market-maker postion. the last test it's gonna be a trading simulation. As far as I know, there are gonna be some simulated macro data coming out + simulated client requests and they are gonna see how you manage you book in a fast envirolment.

Does anyone have or know where I can download a trading simulator for free?

if you are interested in bloomberg at a much lower levy - see which arcades offer it as part of the package - for instance Futex offer it as standard part of their desk fee
