Chapter 13 - The Fixed-Income Market > DIGGING FOR THE DATA

DIGGING FOR THE DATA

Live bond prices and associated interest rates may be obtained during trading hours by subscription to a professional trading system like the Bloomberg Professional service. Delayed quotes may be found on television programs such as those on CNBC and on dozens of financial websites. But if the ultimate use of interest-rate data is economic study and analysis for trading decisions, it is best to have a resource containing a large history of the more relevant series of interest rates. Fortunately, such a resource not only exists but is also free. This veritable gold mine of information is compiled by the Federal Reserve.
The Federal Reserve releases the H.15 Selected Interest Rates report every Monday at 2:30 p.m. (ET). It is generally considered the primary source for interest-rate data and can be found on the Federal Reserve website, at http://www.federalreserve.gov/releases. Included in this report are the daily and weekly averages of interest rates for selected U.S. Treasury and private money market and capital market instruments. FIGURE 13.1 is the H.15 report released on January 16, 2007.
