How to get real-time bond prices

Published on 24 May 2022

Buy-side bond traders increasingly want to automate and analyse their trading where possible, but need the data to do so. Paulo Costa of MarketAxess, tells us where there can be weaknesses in bond market data today, how data sources can potentially provide support for those areas, and introduces a new service, AxessAll prints, which is providing real-time bond pricing.

Paulo explains how the separation of different disclosures across data sources is potentially allowing greater clarity without leaking information which could prove detrimental to the trading desk itself.
