I am a 30-year veteran of the bond market. My career began at the Open Market Desk of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and the significant majority of the subsequent years were spent trading (Treasuries) or selling high grade fixed income product for some of the largest primary dealer firms. I am currently “on the beach” and choose to remain in contact with the bond business via my blog (http://acrossthecurve.com/). Thanks in advance to all who contribute, and since this is a work in progress, I invite constructive criticism regarding the structure and format of my blog (http://acrossthecurve.com/).
