Inactive Bond Crowd
Traders on the New York Stock Exchange who deal with infrequently traded bonds. Because they deal in inactive bonds, the inactive bond crowd is responsible for only a small portion of the bond trading volume. Prices are usually lower than actively traded bonds because inactive bonds have a wider bid-ask spread. The inactive bond crowed is commonly called the cabinet crowd because they normally issue limit orders that are kept on steel racks called cabinets until the orders are needed.
