First common, check out the Bond board in Fooldom. Enter bond in the board box below and press find.

There's a list of links in message 218 on the bond board you might find interesting--though some are out of date.

Standard & Poors, Moody's and Fitch all rate bonds. All have web sites where you can get recent information. However, those are subscription services.

A good source of information on bond ratings is the S&P Corporate series, a monthly paperback book, usually found in the reference department of your local library. Moody's data can also be found there.

CBS Market Watch used to list listed bonds by their ratings on their website. Last I looked that list had been discontinued. I have not seen a recent one.

By far most bonds are traded over the counter. That is they are not listed on a major exchange. You will usually find a list of available bond offered by most brokers and bond dealers. Who ever offers you a bond will almost always be able to supply you with its bond rating--because ratings are fundamental to the bond business.

Have you tried http://www.bondsonline.com/ and http://www.bondpage.com/ ? They have an enormous amount of information on this subject. You can even open an online bond trading account.
