Corporate Bond spreads are tighter again today and I gathered this prior to the very dovish Yellen speech hitting the tapes. The IG 21 is better by a basis point . TMT paper and industrials are also a basis point better. My main source on this topic says that most of the customer inquiry this morning at his shop is on the offered wanted side.

New issuance is light thus far and the names are not high profile types. I would expect that issuance should remain muted until firms leave the blackout period surrounding earnings releases.
