Then we have the coupon frequency and that is the number of coupons per year.…And as I mentioned earlier, that can either be one, which means annual payments,…two, which means semi-annual payments, or four, which is quarterly payments.…And then you have the basis.…Basis is how you count the days in a month and a year.…In North America the standard is for a 30-day month and with 12 months a 360 day…a year.
