Hey, Homie. (That's an inside joke for all you non-Oregonians. Andy-- glad to meet you-- and me hail from the same state.)


There's never a need to apologize for the quantity or quality of posts. If the question is sincere, the post is good. And, like teachers say, if you're asking it, someone probably needed to, too.

The tiny bit of jargon that's confusing you is easily looked up in dozens of places, online or hard cover. (I put together an excellent review of "Books for Bond Beginner's" a while back. But, for the life of me, I can't find it using TMF's misrable search engine. Loki's FAQ was put up not too many posts past. It's there.)

If you're looking for a one-place answer to almost anything, try Wikipedia. That's an authorative resource. Also, look at the fixed-income section of your broker. All of them provide a decent overview.(Fido's might be the best, and it's accessible even if you don't have an account.) Then poke around in a bond offering list. The terms will begin to make sense.
