MILL VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- BondDesk, one of the nation's largest bond trading venues and a leading fixed income technology firm, is pleased to announce the launch of the BondDesk Market Transparency Report. The monthly report is unique because it focuses exclusively on corporate bond trading activity among retail investors. It is designed to help financial advisors and sophisticated retail investors make better decisions about individual corporate bonds.
"The BondDesk Market Transparency Report fills a significant void for advisors and retail investors seeking accessible data about retail bond market trends. Traditionally, published bond market data has focused only on the institutional side," said BondDesk CEO Dr. Peter Crosbie. "With our Market Transparency Report, BondDesk is helping to solve this problem so that advisors and investors can make more informed decisions."
The monthly report, available at www.bonddeskgroup.com, provides exclusive analysis and data on a variety of key market trends. Highlights include:
- Market Recap. A summary of the previous month's trading activity in the retail bond market as well as the economic events that impacted demand.
- Yield/Spread History: A running history of median yields & spreads dating back to 2006, providing a historical context for the current rate environment.
- Yield Matrix. A table containing median yields for each credit rating and maturity, broken out by financials, industrials and utilities.
- Volume Trends. Tables listing the most actively traded corporate issuers, as well as the highest and lowest buy/sell ratios (indicating market momentum).
"Transparency is important in any financial market, but it's especially so for bonds," Dr. Crosbie said. "Our monthly report represents BondDesk's latest effort to increase market transparency and improve the overall efficiency of the retail fixed income markets. We are committed to the long term health of the credit markets, and we feel this report is an important contribution toward that goal."
