I am looking for a (hopefully significantly cheaper) alternative to bloomberg - primarily for fixed income data. Perhaps some survice that has a more modular fee structure (so that I only have to pay for more or less what I need)
It should at least provide:
- Quotes for swaptions and caps (different trikes, tenors etc.) Curves
- swap-curves etc
Motivation: I hardly ever work with equity data and mostly need fixed income quotes to calibrate my models etc. Unfortunately my department does not have it's own terminal (due to budgetary reasons) and I always have to bum data off some co-worker (or use his/her terminal - mostly late at night). My reasoning: if I can show a viable and cheap Bloomberg alternative for the data I actually need, my superiors might reconsider.
