That would depend upon what type of REST API's Bloomberg and Technistock have. If they have REST API's to which you can connect, then Power BI will be able to use them.

In addition, to call REST API in Power BI desktop, you could refrence this Get Data from Twitter API with Power Query. Just tweak the Power Query code according to the specific REST API in your case.
