These bonds are typically high-quality and very liquid. Most agency bonds are taxable at the federal and state level. Some are fully backed by the U.S. government, making their credit risk lower than other types of bonds.
These bonds are issued by companies, and their credit risk ranges over the whole spectrum. Interest from these bonds is taxable at both the federal and state levels. Because these bonds aren't as safe as government bonds, their yields are generally higher.
The paper examines the applicability of GDP-linked bonds for the financing of developing countries and emerging markets. GDP-linked bonds are bonds of which the coupon and/or redemption payments are tied to the GDP of the issuing country. The study encompasses a detailed empirical analysis of their pricing behaviour, the pricing sensitivities to changes in GDP, and of their behaviour in a portfolio context is conducted. A survey amongst potential investors as well as issuing-side capital market participants assesses the prospects of success of this new type of bond. Finally, the usefulness of a partial public guarantee of payments is examined. The paper provides evidence under which circumstances, for which investors and for which countries GDP-linked bonds might be an appropriate investment vehicle.
Traders in Glencore bonds have stopped using the rate of interest to describe how much they're worth, and are quoting prices in cents on the dollar of face value, according to a report in the Financial Times on Thursday.
Traders are worried that the company won't be able to pay back the bonds and all the other types of debt. The debt maturing in May 2016 is trading around 93 cents on the dollar, according to the FT, giving an effective annual yield of 13%.

According to analysts at Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the $9 billion revolving loan due next year can be rolled over to 2017 for as little as 0.25%, leaving the Glencore balance sheet in a better position to pay back the 2016 bonds.
As the name implies, corporate bonds are issued by public or private companies that need access to new sources of cash flow so they can pay for upcoming business ventures. That could include corporate growth, expansion into a new market, the purchase of equipment, or a product launch.
Also called muni bonds, these debt obligations are issued by states, cities, and counties to pay for various local government-approved projects. That could include the construction of a new school, a revamped highway or sewer system, or the development of a local park or neighborhood library. The interest income from muni bonds is typically exempt from federal and local taxes for residents of the issuing municipality.
How many bonds an investor chooses to purchase often depends on the frequency of payments desired, as well as the length of time those payments are wanted (once a month for a 30-year retirement, for example).
Bonds, on the other hand, are typically traded over the counter in the secondary market by large broker-dealers who buy and sell bonds on behalf of clients. Very few everyday investors ever have direct experience with the over-the-counter market.
