Hi, does anybody have a good site to chart debt spreads of bond indexes?

 

Thanks

Which ones indices are you looking at? I have access to Barclays which has the info on all of their indices.

 

I'm looking to see if it could be worth it for me to move from some equity to corporate or muni bonds. I will especially be looking for companies with high financial leverage that might wipe out the equity but survive after chapter 11. I was thinking spreads for:

Muni VS Treasury

High Yield VS Treasury

Investment Grade VS Treasury

Muni index is 3+% YTW on a post-tax basis - but callables unlikely to be called in this environment so you may do a fair bit better.

 

HY is @ 10% OAS

 

IG was @ 3.5ish last I checked.
