Elder06,

Make sure that you are including all transaction fees. Also go to FINRA and pull trading activity results. On the liquidity side of the issue you need to be aware that just because Vendor A has 100 or 10,000 of the bonds for sale doesn't mean they are willing to sell you 1 or 2. The elephants rule this dance and the tend to trade by large lots.

The materiality for the elephants and the materiality for the mice is often significantly different.
