I've become interested in dabbling in some bond purchases, and need to learn a bit more about them before jumping in. I KNOW, I could go with a good bond mutual fund and "leave the driving to the pros." But, I want that extra 1-2% for myself, and if I do my homework, I should be just fine! Here are some of my preliminary questions:
1- How does one find the symble for a bond issue?
2- What's the difference between "debentures" and "notes"?
3- I've looked at, and they say they charge NOTHING for trading bonds- HOW can that be, WHERE do they make their money?
4- Do ALL brokers NOT charge for bond trading?
Thanks for any help.
