Sources and Methodology on the Medium Grade Corporate Bond Return Calculator

Data is from the Bank of America Merrill Lynch Indexes. We pull B, BB, and BBB rated corporate debt daily from St. Louis Federal Reserve’s FRED.

CPI methodology, including interpolation and extrapolation, is available on our original any day inflation calculator. Interpolations & extrapolations are updated once a month.
