It's a publication devoted to the muni market. I'm thinking it might be worth subcribing to it.

Any thoughts?

I don't think there is any publication in the world that is worth $2197 a year!

You can get a huge amount of bond information for free on the internet already. Why pay an exorbitant amount for it?

Check out some bond info sites as follows:

You would think a bond newsletter would be mostly about 1) what the experts think is going to happen to interest rates and 2) which issues are likely to be upgraded or downgraded for creditworthiness.

I would think you would have to be a major bond trader to make a newsletter subscription worthwhile.

I've read some of these industry newsletters. They're mostly gossip about who's hiring whom, who's firing whom, who's starting a new department, the impact of new regulations, new issues that may or may not come to market, whether company x was successful at selling their big issue, etc. Some information is relevant to a trader, but not much.

Actually very little speculation about future market events.
