The post you replied to was written in 2013. Now, it's 2019, and the opportunities it described are no longer available, mainly due to the Fed's easy money policies.

As with stock investing/trading, there are lots of ways bond investing/trading can be done.

The former is mainly an institutional game. The later is just classic, Ben Graham-style investing, easily done by small accounts.
