Description

The Bloomberg Swap Execution Facility (SEF) offers customers the ability to execute derivative instruments across a number of different asset classes. It is required to make publicly available price, trading volume and other trading data. It publishes this data on its website. I have reverse engineered the JavaScript libraries used by its website to call the Bloomberg Application Service using POST requests to a target URL.
