From Financial Advisor Mag July 2014

"On June 9, the Municipal Securities Rulemaking Board introduced its Price Discovery Tool on its Electronic Municipal Market Access (EMMA) Web site at www.msrb.org.

The tool represents a major milestone in MSRB's "goal of a fair and efficient market through transparency." says Justin Pica, director of product management. "The MSRB has data collected since the 1990s on all purchases and sale transactions in our database."

The information, which is free to access, includes bond couplons, state of issue, tax status, and Fitch and S&P credit agency ratings..."

I took a tour of the new tool and it is a pretty slick resource for individuals investors.

If you have any interest in muni bonds, I recommend you bookmark this new tool. The information provided is not something you can typically get from your broker for free (if at all) and it is very very user friendly.
