I am interested in buying a commercial bond issued by a coal mining company. The CUSIP is 62704PAM5. I searched online at tdameritrade.com and was not able to find the bond using their bond search tool. I called in to the fixed income department at TD Ameritrade and they were not able to find it either.

Is there a reason a commercial bond like the one I referenced above wouldn't be available through a major broker? The issuer, Murray Energy, is a top 5 coal producer in the United States and is rated by the major credit agencies.

    "I searched online at tdameritrade.com and was not able to find the bond". I see it at Vanguard and Fidelity. "Is there a reason a commercial bond like the one I referenced above wouldn't be available through a major broker?" Maybe TDA has decided not to trade in coal company bonds? – RonJohn Oct 7 '19 at 20:21

Murray Energy is privately held, so there is apparently not much of a secondary market for their bonds.

If you are interesting in purchasing their bonds, the investor page of their website provides a phone number and email address you can use to contact them directly.
