ZERO BOND: Also termed a zero coupon bond, a bond that does not pay interest, in which the return is generated by the difference between the purchase price and the face value paid at maturity. Because they do not pay interest, zero bonds are sold at a discount. For example, a $10,000 zero bond that matures in one year, would generate a 10% return if it sold at a discount of $9,000.

CURRENT YIELD: The yield or return on a financial asset calculated as the annual rate of return on the purchase price. The current yield is not necessarily equal to the yield to maturity or the coupon rate. For example a $100,000 corporate bond with a 5% coupon rate that is purchased at a discount of $95,000 has a current yield of 5.26%.

MARKET ADJUSTMENT

The economic analysis of changes in market equilibrium caused by changes in any of the five demand determinants and/or the five supply determinants. Market adjustment comes in one of eight varieties, given that the two curves comprising the market (demand curve and supply curve) can either increase or decrease, individually or simultaneously. Four adjustments involve a shift of EITHER the demand curve OR the supply curve. The other four adjustments involve shifts of BOTH the demand curve AND the supply curve.
