I also am considering buying some corporate bonds.
Several brokers have told me any good AAA corporate bonds paying a nice YTM are bought up very quickly !

How does one acertain what is available? Negotiate etc. with out having an IRA Brokerage account open yet! Do all this in a matter of hours if good bond deals expire this quickly ? Or are some of these brokers mis-leading me on corporate bond aviability time frames ?? I plan to purchase a fewhundred grand for income purpose.

Thanks !!

"Bond trading costs are usually hidden. Therefore, best procedure is decide what ratings and maturities you want, and then get competitive bids for similar if not identical issues from several brokers or bond dealers. Then make the best deal you can"
