Yeah, there are some newsletters that focus on fixed-income. www.bondsonline.com lists a few, and a search engine will turn up more. And there are some newsletters - e.g., Investor's Intelligence, if I'm remembering the title right - that offer a level-headed view across all asset classes, bonds included. But all newsletters suffer from the same two problems: untimeliness and black-box advice, meaning, 1st, the market has already moved by the time you hear about it and, 2nd, even though the letter writer might be really smart and honest, he isn't you and you aren't learning how to make your own decisions. You're just following advice, however sound, rather than accepting responsibility for your mistakes and learning how to deal with uncertainty. My suggestion? If you're serious about bonds, start reading the classic texts and start doing some buying, constantly alternating between the two until you figure out #1 who you are as a person and, therefore, who you can be as an investor/trader, and #2 what it is you're trying to accomplish by investing/trading bonds.Another suggestion? Pay attention to the larger theoretical context first and then focus on asset-classs specifics and the technicalities of selecting issues and getting trades done, and a good place to begin the former learning process is Justin Mamis' book "The Nature of Risk."
