Is there not a secondary market for the 21 year bonds? You dont have to hold to maturity.



There is a secondary market for all the bonds issued by the govt... Plus corporate bonds.

In other news, Tbill rates are creeping upwards.
I am 75 year old veteran of CBK investing, having first started about 40 years ago.
At my age, I cannot invest in these 21 year bonds.
I am waiting for 2 to 5 year bonds, but these are very rare nowadays.
CBK should consider these shorter term bonds. A lot of people like myself would move from Tbills to these bonds, thus helping CBK to spread their borrowing to more than 91/182/364 days.




It is so easy selling a bond in the secondary market these days. You forego around 2- 2.5% by buying those shorter end bonds.

If you look at the price list for the last few months the below 50 million section is flooded with small lots being sold. Retail activity has also increased many times over.

I know someone who is almost your age and has packed a sizeable amount in longer tenor papers mostly IFBs.

@ maka. THANKS a lot. Much appreciated.
I have been just buying primary issues all this time,and holding them to maturity.
It would be GREAT if I could buy long term bonds and off load them when necessary. I could even buy bonds with 2 to 5 years left to maturity.

However, where do I find these offers? Is there a website that you can direct me to?
Thanks

Remember we run an OTC market it is all about negotiation. If you have a broker ask them to share their flows with you then you can negotiate with them. At least the retail market has picked up nicely so many papers available...

I use either AIB (AIB -AXYS) or Genghis Capital... Both have worked perfectly well for me in terms of execution and also getting order flows. Rem on your ATS registration you can appoint up to 5 different brokers.
