I am trying to understand the abbreviations in the Bloomberg European stock or STOXX data. Each ticker represents company name abbreviation - Listed exchange.

For example, CSP - LN is Countryside Properties PLC - London stock exchange. I am hoping to find a document where I can get the "two-letter" abbreviation used for all the European stock exchanges - can please someone guide me on this?

Comment The out of date document (see the first comment by @noob2) had all the exchange codes for the recent STOXX 600 except 'SE', which stands for the Swiss Stock Exchange.

    $\begingroup$ The most recent Exchange Codes can be found with the EPRX {go} command. A slightly out of date list can be found online here guides.library.cornell.edu/ld.php?content_id=18933264 . Note that there can be both a specific code for an exchange (UN = NYSE exchange) and a Composite Code that covers multiple exchanges in a country (eg, US = any US exchange including but not limited to NYSE). $\endgroup$ – noob2 May 10 at 19:23
  • $\begingroup$ I don't have access to the Bloomberg, so I guess I have to settle for the link you gave. Many thanks. $\endgroup$ – Waqas May 10 at 20:08

May I refer you to my own list.

Bloomberg used to make this available in pre-OpenFIGI times (when the service was called bsym). Nowadays, apart from the OMG FIGI specification, it's nowhere to be found.

  • $\begingroup$ This is a good start, but these aren't (all) the symbols that Bloomberg uses. I don't see Bogota (CB) or Toronto (CN) or Moscow, for example. Also Bloomberg uses BZ for Brazil, not BV. $\endgroup$ – Dimitri Vulis May 11 at 4:00
