Intermarket Spread Swap

The sale of one bond and the purchase of another with completely different terms, such as a different coupon rate or maturity. Alternatively, one may directly swap one bond for the other. Intermarket spread swaps occur when the market and/or one's investment goals have changed, rendering it necessary to adopt a different bond strategy.
