Point

One percent or 1%. A Bond that is discounted two Points is quoted at 98% of its Par (Principal amount) value. Because the dollar prices of municipal Bonds are quoted as a percentage of $1,000, a Point is worth $10 regardless of the actual Denomination of a particular Bond. For example, a bond discounted 2 Points, or $20, is quoted at “98” (98% of its Par Value), or $980 per $1,000.
