I think it would be great if individuals could trade bond on e-bay. You would probably post your brokers offer as the minimum bid and then see if anyone is willing to pay closer to market. I wonder if this is legal?

Not sure, but probably not. That would probably legally make E*Bay a bond broker and subject to all kinds of federal legal requirements that they aren't subject to now because they don't assist people in trading securities.
