The current yield of a bond can be described as the ratio of the annual interest earned to the actual market price of the bond. The current yield is stated as a percentage. For example, if a bond’s current market price is Baht 1,000 and it pays an interest of Baht 70 a year, then the current yield of that bond will be 7%.
When you sell a bond and purchase another one that has the same market value then it is known as Bond Swap. Swaps are usually made to modify maturity, increase credit quality, etc.
When a bond is issued at a value that is less than its par or face value, then it is known as a discount bond.
