The article reports that according to market participants, credit spreads should remain tight in early 2005 as the overwhelmingly strong demand for a limited supply of high-yield paper promises to persist going into the first part of the year. portfolio managers forecast steady demand for high-yield bonds in the first quarter of 2005, fueled by a lack of issuance in the first six weeks of the year, and the ongoing need to compensate for yield shortfalls in the high-quality market. A lot of demand will be driven from the direction of interest rates.
