From the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Portal
The bond market is a market where issuers borrow money by creating and selling, also referred to as issuing, negotiable debt instruments in the primary market typically to underwriters, dealers or brokers, which are then bought and possibly again sold and bought in the secondary market.
In the Collaborative Bond and Money Market Data Model, the field "Market" appears with the attribute or classifications:
- Euro Market
- Foreign Market
- Global Market, and
- Domestic Market.
Where no classification is provided and the ISIN does not start with XS, the default is Domestic Market. In capital market data analysis CMDportal often uses the characteristic that the ISIN starts with specific two letters:
- XS for International bonds, which can either be Euro, Foreign or Global bonds and
- not XS for bonds that are Domestic bonds, such as DE for German Domestic Bonds, FR for French Domestic Bonds etc.
Subscribing CMDportal users can filter for bonds by Market typing these first two letters in the ISIN filter or by using the Market filter as provided by most tools on the portal.
Based on available data, on the 1st of October 2018, the size of the Bond Market, including Euro, Foreign, Global and Domestic Bond Markets was over USD 112.2 trillion.
