Issue date

The date a security is first offered for sale. That date usually
determines when interest payments, known as coupons, are made.


Odd first or last period

Fixed-income securities may be purchased on dates
that do not coincide with coupon or payment dates. The length of the first and

bond owner is not entitled to the full value of the coupon for that period.
Instead, the coupon is pro-rated according to how long the bond is held during
that period.

bonds and money market instruments.
