Don't know if this is the right section, but I just asked Bloomberg support for a Bitcoin/USD ticker symbol.... Apparently they have had more requests for it and are looking into supporting it:

Me: Good afternoon,

With Bitcoin being in the news and a lot of traders watching it (has been featured on BBG TV), is there any chance Bloomberg will make a Bitcoin/Usd ticker?

BBG Help: at this time, we do not have bitcoin on Bloomberg - however, we are tracking interest in this for our business managers and I will add you to a request to get bitcoin pricing on Bloomberg. Just so I can provide some more information on why clients are interested in it, can you clarify why you're looking at it, what exactly you would most like to see/do on Bloomberg with it, etc.?

Me: Thanks, I like to be able to get price history, graphing capabilities, some technical analysis and be able to follow headlines on Bitcoin. It is an interesting currency concept which is gaining traction. It is an interesting currency concept which is gaining traction. Hopefully we will be able to trade it in a professional manner soon

BBG Help: Great, we will add your inquiry to the request so you will be notified should it be implemented.

Well written request DutchBrat.  The good news is Bloomberg doesn't want another company to move first so it is only a matter of when not if.  The more requests they get from existing clients the more likely it will get priority.

I'm not allowed to say that I know of a major trading platform that already supports BTC/N & N/BTC pair symbols for all possible pairs from Bloomberg, effectively making BTC just another currency at a major forex.  I'm also not allowed to say that the software went into test in January and is just waiting for Bloomberg to flip the switch.
If this were true though the price of bitcoins would skyrocket to around $500 before staying settled at around $225, but it wouldn't be MtGox doing the exchange.

I hate NDA's Smiley

It would then be great to have this maybe existing broker also invest a few hours of developer time to get quotes to bitcoincharts as a kind of charity/community outreach act. Maybe. Wink
