I hope it at least gives him entertainment in what I assume is his retirement.
TravelerMSY said: That's the part I find odd. Why spend any amount of time looking for stale quotes if you can't trade on them? Dealer markets like retails bonds don't have binding quotes. Agree. I'd be nice to know if he ever gets any good deals.
I have the opposite problem. When I find a good deal at the existing price, maybe because some good news came out, the bond exchange or the counterparty finds some excuse to break the trades even though they were at a reasonable price that they offered. At least the stock markets don't break trades that often and usually only if they're 10% away from where the market was. These bond guys break things that might move 1% just to screw me.
