What is a Nominal Yield?

Nominal yield represents the coupon rate of a fixed income security, which is the income, received from the security in one year, divided by its par value and stated as a percentage. Nominal yield does not vary with the market price of the security in contrast to current yield.

To be a successful investor you'll need the right trading platform. A professional-grade, award-winning platform that offers low cost trades like OptionHouse. The low cost trades will allow you to preserve more of your wealth and save money, which you can reinvest instead of paying brokerage commissions.
Opening a OptionsHouse account to benefit from their low $3.95 stock trades (currently they offer 100 free trades) is a smart idea.
