    Tack...could you give a particular bond or several you think would be good to monitor in the Oil and Gas sector..I have tracked HYLD but it is only 12% Energy sector...I also track
    the VNR 7.875 4/1/2020...and the Midstates 9.25 6/1/2021 which trades now at 36....I have not bought either one...
