1. I can't speak for how often they change them, but they HAVE changed in the last week. I reviewed current prices through Vanguard -- I know, it's NOT bond heaven, but it works for me. It do my very limited disaster option purchases there too.

...

4. I still can't understand the difference in price/yield between the 2018's and 2017's unless large institutions can't trade small numbers ($43 million is small?????).



All I meant is that $43mn outstanding is a lot less than $1000mn, so they may not be traded very often. Maybe part of the price discrepancy is because the price on the 2017s is stale. On the other hand, bond prices should be going in the same direction as the share price, so if the 2017s' prices were old, they should be higher than the 2018s, not lower, so maybe that's not it.
