and basically I need a online bond broker

My experience with E*TRADE is restricted to convertible bonds. Usually it is possible to trade the registered convertibles although sometimes E*TRADE expects a minimum amount to be traded or does not offer a specific convertible bond at all (with no reason).
The spread varies, but is somtimes a bit wide (400-600 basis points) too, although if you limit your order (recommended) you may get the bonds for the better price.
