When you start the service for the first time, one of the pre-set bond maps will be open by default:
The full list of the pre-set bond maps is available via the drop-down list. A user can perform changes in the pre-set market maps and (or) build his/her own maps based on the pre-set ones.
The map will be built by default in a “Yield, %” versus “Duration, years” plot. It is possible to build a bond map in another plot. The available values are displayed in the drop-down lists axially:
Mouse over any spot on the map to see a pop-up window with the names of issues, current coupon rate and the spot position. It is possible to go to any issue page on the bond map by clicking the corresponding spot. Map zooming is performed via horizontal scrolling under the chart or via the field for entering maximum and minimum values along the vertical axis. So that the functionality works correctly, it is allowed to enter only scale values indicated on the axis. A bond map can be saved as a file or printed via the correspondent context menu item in the right top corner:
More information on market maps functionality is provided in the User Guide.
In case of any questions on the website section, please contact Cbonds managers or ask Cbonds online consultant directly from the section.
