Bond prices are finally beginning to fall toward levels approaching issuers' credit risk. For many of the issues I have interest in, the difference between bid and ask prices is way larger than I have ever seen. For instance, Emerson Electric senior unsecured 3.15% with a maturity in 2025 has a bid/ask spread of 87- 109! Is this because of the relative lack of liquidity in the bond markets?
