Data tools and data

Post by gbs » Sun May 27, 2007 2:22 pm

We will collect here links that provide asset class/fund returns as well as programs/spreadsheets that help process that data.

Submissions are open.

Comments in the main forum not this tread.

Regards, gbs

While stock quotes are easy to come by, bond quotes are much more difficult.

I've always used this Bloomberg page as a quick reference to approximately current prices and yields. Yesterday at FWF, one of our members linked an astonishingly comprehensive Vanguard page that others might find useful.
