Not tedious at all to me. I am new to bonds and greatly appreciate what I am learning here. I have read the Getting Started in Bonds book.

A question if it isn't too much of an imposition. I went to the FINRA site where you can see whether a bond was sold or bought and saw the designations S, B and D in the reporting party side column. What does the D mean? And does the S mean that someone wanted to sell and was able to at the price they wanted? Also confused by what the B may actually indicate. By now you know you are dealing with a real amateur, but a really interested one!

thank you
