Corporate bond yield spreads have compressed sharply

Given how flat the yield curve is, corporate bond yield spreads have compressed sharply. In other words, you are not getting paid to invest in a corporate bond compared to a government bond.

Not sure I fully understand this chart. You are saying sprads have compressed in 13th Apr compared to previous week?
At least based on the table you have put up, there does not appear to be any sharp compression between previous week and 13 apr.

Sorry, my bad, what I meant is spreads in general are very tight, not just week on week.
