How Do You Get a List of Trading Symbols for Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds?

Online financial publications such as MarketWatch and Bloomberg Business list ticker symbols for stocks, bonds and mutual funds, according to their sites. Both publications allow users to look up the symbol for any stock, bond or mutual fund by entering the name of the security in a search box.

Since there are thousands of stocks, bonds and mutual funds, users who are looking for a specific symbol need to know the company name, the name of the bond or the name of the mutual fund during their search. One online financial publication, EODData, provides a comprehensive list of mutual funds sorted alphabetically by ticker symbol.
