buying swiss bonds?

I can't seem to find any information on buying swiss bonds. There is a lot of good info out there on buying Canadian bonds (including a good thread on this forum) ... and I'm sure we'll see lots more after that fun Bernanke reveal ... but swiss bonds seem to be a bit more out of reach, or at least I just can't turn up any practical information on it. Anyone know a bit about this?

Call a broker at UBS or Credit Suisse? They should know...

Are you primarily doing it for the currency play? If so, you could also use FXF.
"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

Look at PRPFX

Thanks all, good advice.

I already have a position in FXF but now that you mention it, just adding to it is probably (a lot) simpler than buying swiss bonds.

As you can probably tell I have a very bearish outlook on the USD/DOW.

Thanks again!

PS, I'm fully invested in gold already but I must say PRPFX is interesting!
