The number of bond-focused ETFs increases today, as iShares brings out two new BATS-listed ETFs and Van Eck launches a new Market Vectors exchange-traded fund, according to an article on Benzinga.com.

The iShares Emerging Markets High-Yield Bond Fund (BATS: EMHY) and the iShares Global ex-USD High Yield Corporate Bond Fund (BATS HYXU) will track the Morningstar Emerging Markets High Yield Bond Index and the Markit iBoxx Global Developed Markets ex-USD High Yield Index, respectively, the article said.
