Moody's: Liquidity improves for junk-rated firms

|By:, SA News Editor

Junk bonds may look overvalued - and BAML's gauge of their spread to Treasurys is the lowest since 2007 - but Moody's Liquidity Stress Index declined (a good thing) to 3.7% in May from 4% previously.

There's a bit of Soros' reflexivity at work here as the Index performs well when the junk-bond market performs well, and both seemingly feed off of each other. Its record-low level of 2.8% was set last April and the record-high of 20.9% was set in March 2009.
