That's good. Please do steal my idea of using the impact of the coupons and interest paid to figure the return of your bonds.

Bob,

Steal someone else's ideas? I do so shamelessly. E.g., I owe nearly all of my ideas about how to manage risk to Taleb. But how I do things in the bond world is probably unique, and it's an edge I don't share publicly, not that there really are any "secrets", as more of my adapted mentors (and sources of more ideas) fully acknowledge. Why can that be so? Because human nature never changes, and it's humans that make markets, HFT not withstanding.
