    Hello, I'm a longtime share investor and would like to move into US high yield bonds. I can't find any information on the mechanics of this. Does anyone know - am I able to purchase these through a broker from Australia?

    You are aware of the tax free status of us treasury bonds for us citizens and the low dividend as a rule for us share market ?
    Good bond returns probably mean high risk

    I like the range available in the US, but I think the risk can be lower than shares if you do your homework (company has to be able to pay interest on its loans and have suff capital to pay the bond, etc). Still, might be too difficult from Aus.

    Jared Dillian at The 10th Man is also worth a read for regular homework. Get the freebie newsletter but don't sign up !:)

    but remember, High Yield has another name: JUNK.
