- Clean price
In finance, the clean price is the price of a bond excluding any interest that has accrued since issue or the most recent coupon payment. This is to be compared with the dirty price, which is the price of a bond including the accrued interest.
Clean prices are more stable over time than dirty prices – when clean prices change, it is for an economic reason, for instance a change in interest rates or in the bond issuer's credit quality. Dirty prices, on the other hand, change day to day depending on where the current date is in relation to the coupon dates, in addition to any economic reasons.
