From the Back Cover

The Reuters Financial Training Series An Introduction to Bond Markets An Introduction to Bond Markets introduces novices to bonds, notes, derivatives and other instruments used in the world’s largest markets. Readers will learn how these products are traded and quoted in the financial markets. This comprehensive guide bridges the gap between academic texts that are often too theoretical, and the more technical practitioner’s works. Key features include:
  • Introductory sections defining terms and giving background to theories
  • Examples and calculations of various types of bond market instruments
  • Summaries and overviews at the end of each chapter recapitulating key points and definitions
  • Quick quiz questions and answers to reinforce learning
  • Further resources which point to other books, articles and internet tools to widen readers’ comprehension and entrench their foundation in the subject.
Each book in the series is supported by the Wiley-Reuters Financial Training web site. This regularly updated site offers a range of screens taken directly fr om the Reuters terminal, information on professional exams, web links to key institutional finance web sites and much more. Endorsed by the ISMA Center - the Business School for Financial Markets at the University of Reading, UK, this book will be of particular interest to novice traders, investors and trainers in financial institutions looking for a key introductory text. Key concepts are illustrated with excellent real world examples, exercises and screen dumps while still recognising that most readers will not trade bonds or become pricing technicians.

As a computer systems administrator, I usually support several applications without getting too involved in their inner workings nor with the business that they run. This book, however, allowed me to understand the bond markets and to be able to interact with computer users with definite knowledge and sure understanding of the business. The book is a cross between a text book and a do-it-yourself with examples. I couldn't have done it with out it. Next I'm ordering An introduction to Derivatives.

You can't really use it. Huge amount of typos, omissions and errors. Just try to compute rate of return using formula from the book ROR = [(Selling price-1)/Buying price]*100. Buying for 90 and selling for 100 gives you a zero return rate, nice, isn't it. Worst book I've ever had.
