My institution gives students access to bloomberg financial analytics, which has a ton of super-neat AI friendly data, like, really really neat data. Unfortunately it seems like this was intended for the finance or economic majors or something, because we don't get downloads for old datasets or even an API to reference, just a crappy web ui.
I tried to build a web scrapper for it but it is honestly not easy to scrape and almost intentionally so.
Does anyone have any experience in pulling a bunch of this data for AI training purposes? Don't even want the hot n' fresh stuff, just a method to get a few years of older data would be fine. Sure there are other financial datasets but not as juicy as bloombergs.
