Thomson Reuters Eikon is a comprehensive and intuitive service that provides financial information on commodities, equities, fixed income and hedge funds, foreign exchange, money markets and wealth management. Eikon provides critical market data, charts, line series analysis and streaming news from Reuters and other financial institutions and market research firms for price analysis and global indices of individual stocks.

An important part of Eikon is the formerly separate Thomson Reuters Datastream. It provides access to time series of more than 15 million financial instruments, securities and indices as well as a history of this data of up to 60 years. In particular, these time series can be processed directly with Excel.

Datastream provides extensive raw data for further analysis. In contrast, Eikon is a very comprehensive working environment with many and complex analysis and evaluation options, especially with regard to charts. In addition, market data and current news can be retrieved in real time.

Instructions for using Eikon can be found at the bottom of this page under Downloads.
