high yield bond volume

High yield bond issuance in June slumped to $12.8 billion, the lowest monthly figure since June 2012, from a whopping $43 billion in May, as issuers struggled against overall market volatility and word from the Fed that it might reduce buying activity later this year. The second quarter saw $82.5 billion in U.S. high yield bond activity, bringing the year-to-date total to $172.9 billion (note that these numbers are updated/final from preliminary numbers published on June 30).
