I've just started looking at bonds and looking at the Ameritrade website and corporate bonds, I hope someone will politely tell me what the following information is telling me including what the category abbreviations are:

Let's start with assumption that "coupon" is the interest rate they pay?

YTM & YTW.....don't have a clue It say YTM 2.33 and underneath is says MAT

Price is $109.05, again I assume that is what I would pay for one bond?

Next: 191216AV2 250 (again QTY min?)
Industrial 10

This may sound like I have no business fooling around with bonds, but I have to start somewhere, so please be kind.
