The article provides an outlook for the junk bond market in the United States for 2006. In the last quarter of 2005, high-yield closed-end fund prices were volatile. Also, the discounts at which high-yield bond funds trade relative to the value of their underlying assets have declined. However, analysts expect that loan closed-end funds will perform better this year.
