Bonds an instrument of indebtedness of the bond issuer to the holders a debt security, under which the issuer owes the holders a debt and, depending on the terms of the bond, is obliged to pay them interest and/or to repay the principal at a later date, termed the maturity. Debtor – creditor relationship
Features of a Bond Principal – Nominal, principal, par or face amount is the amount on which the issuer pays interest, and which, most commonly, has to be repaid at the end of the term.

Features of a Bond Coupon – The coupon is the interest rate that the issuer pays to the holder. – Usually this rate is fixed throughout the life of the bond.
Features of a Bond Yield – The yield is the rate of return received from investing in the bond. Current Yield - simply the annual interest payment divided by the current market price of the bond. Yield to Maturity - which is a more useful measure of the return of the bond, taking into account the current market price, and the amount and timing of all remaining coupon payments and of the repayment due on maturity.
Features of a Bond Market Price – The market price of the bond will vary over its life. At a Premium - above par, usually because market interest rates have fallen since issue. At a Discount – price below par, if market rates have risen or there is a high probability of default on the bond
